1863 November 6th

November 6 1863 Friday

Battle of Droop Mountain, WV (CWSAC Formative Battle Union Victory)

Bristoe Campaign

Chattanooga Campaign

Knoxville Campaign

Averell’s Lewisburg Raid

Rio Grande Expedition

Second Bayou Teche Campaign

Dutch East Indies. CSS Alabama, Captain Raphael Semmes, captured and destroyed the bark Amanda with a cargo of hemp and sugar.

Louisiana. Expedition to La Fourche District ended.

Missouri. Reconnaissance to Neosho ended. Incident at Neosho.

South Carolina. The Union naval forces at Charleston experimented with innovative approaches to pass through the maze of Confederate obstructions around Fort Sumter. John Ericsson, the designer of the USS Monitor had devised a torpedo to be used against underwater obstacles. USS Patapsco, Commander Thomas H Stevens, tested this invention, which comprised a cast-iron shell some 23 feet long and 10 inches in diameter and containing 600 pounds of powder. It was suspended from a raft attached to the ironclad’s bow and held in position by two long booms. The demonstration was successful in clearing the obstacle and the shock of the explosion was hardly perceptible aboard USS Patapsco. However, even in calm conditions, the raft interfered with the ship’s manoeuvrability. Rear Admiral John Adolphus Bernard Dahlgren noted that the new torpedo was useful only against fixed objects in calm waters and was too complicated for use against enemy warships.

Tennessee. Incident at Chattanooga.

Tennessee. Confederate Brigadier-General William Edmondson Jones captured a Union garrison at Rogersville, with 775 prisoners, 32 wagons, ambulances, and 1,000 horses. However, by the time the horses got to headquarters, only 300 remained in Confederate hands. Major-General Robert Ransom, reported that the missing horses were appropriated surreptitiously by the men.

Texas. Union Major-General Napoleon Jackson Tecumseh Dana occupied and garrisoned Brownsville, thirty miles inland from Brazos Santiago, after its evacuation by the Confederates. He remained at Brownsville to secure the Rio Grande and the Mexican border while part of his expeditionary force prepared to occupy Corpus Christi further along the coast. Part of his force also occupied Point Isabel.

Virginia. Skirmish near Falmouth.

West Virginia. Skirmish at Little Sewell Mountain.

Droop Mountain, West Virginia. Union Brigadier-General William Woods Averell had pushed Confederate Colonel William Jackson’s force to the summit of Droop Mountain, where they were reinforced by a force under Brigadier-General John Echols, consisting of Colonel George S Patton’s brigade and a regiment from Brigadier-General Albert Gallatin Jenkins’ command. The Confederate position was a relatively strong one, reinforced by breastworks commanding the road. The mountain formed a barrier to north-south passage and formed a strongpoint to block troop movements along the west bank of the Greenbrier River.

Averell elected to attack the Confederate position. Throughout the morning, Echols’ smaller Confederate force was able to hold the high ground and blocked the highway with artillery. However, in the early afternoon, Averell turned Echols’ left with his infantry and then sent dismounted cavalry in a frontal assault on the main Confederate lines. Echols was particularly anxious about a second Union column under Brigadier-General Alfred Napoleon Alexander Duffié, which was approaching from the direction of Charleston and the Kanawha Valley. Echols decided to withdraw to escape encirclement. Many of the Confederates fled and scattered during the retreat. Averell’s cavalry pursued until darkness fell, capturing several prisoners and a large quantity of arms, ammunition, and materiel. Echols rallied much of his force but was forced to retreat further into Virginia. Confederate Major-General Samuel Jones received reports that the action was a disaster rather than a defeat and alerted Richmond to a potential catastrophe. In fact, Echols had escaped fairly lightly, despite being alarmed at the risk of being cut off from Lewisburg. After this battle, Confederate resistance in West Virginia all but collapsed. Total casualties were estimated as 526. (CWSAC Formative Battle Union Victory)
