1863 October 15th

October 15 1863 Thursday

Siege of Chattanooga

Bristoe Campaign

Shelby’s Raid in Arkansas and Missouri

Second Bayou Teche Expedition

Florida. USS Honduras, Acting Master Abraham N Gould, seized the British steamer Mail near St Petersburg, bound from Bayport to Havana with a cargo of cotton and turpentine. The capture was made after a three-hour chase in which USS Two Sisters, USS Sea Bird, and USS Fox also participated.

Indian Territory. Skirmish at the Creek Agency.

Louisiana. Incident at Carrion Crow Bayou.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Brownsville,

Mississippi. Skirmish on the Canton Road near Brownsville.

Mississippi. USS Commodore, Acting Master John R Hamilton, and USS Corypheus, Acting Master Francis H Grove, destroyed a Confederate tannery at Bay St Louis.

Missouri. Skirmish at Cross Timbers with Confederate Colonel Joseph Orville Shelby.

Missouri. Incident at Deep Water Creek.

South Carolina. The Confederate submarine H L Hunley left Charleston Harbour at 9.25 am for a practice dive under the receiving ship Indian Chief. At 9.35 am a flow of bubbles indicated that the top hatch by which the crew entered the boat had not been properly sealed and the boat was lost. It was impossible to rescue the men, as the water was nine fathoms deep. The inventor Horace L Hunley and his seven-man crew all perished. They were the second crew to be lost in the vessel. The submarine was raised again and a third crew volunteered under Lieutenant George Dixon. Dixon and Lieutenant William A Alexander reconditioned the boat but, as a safety precaution, it was not permitted to dive again and only operated on the surface.

The submersible was fitted with a spar torpedo and ventured frequently on the surface at night from her base on Sullivan’s Island into Charleston harbour at night. Union ships frequently remained on station some six or seven miles away and posted picket boats at night. This factor, and the weather and sea conditions, combined with the physical exhaustion of the crew, restricted the effectiveness of the novel craft.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Bristol.

Tennessee. Skirmish near Philadelphia.

Tennessee. Union XVI Corps (Tennessee) was partially reintegrated after an interregnum of six months while its divisions were dispersed. Two divisions had remained in Tennessee, two divisions served in Mississippi for the Vicksburg campaign, and one had been transferred to Arkansas. As its divisions concentrated, the Corps once again became a united command.

Virginia. Skirmishes at McLean’s Ford, Liberty Mills, Blackburn’s Ford, and Mitchell’s Ford on Bull Run Creek.

Virginia. Skirmishes at Manassas and Oak Hill.

Virginia. Skirmish at Broad Run.

Virginia. After firmly deterring Confederate pursuit at Bristoe Station, the Union Army of the Potomac continued its march to occupy strong defensive positions around Centreville, destroying the bridges in its rear as it retreated.

West Virginia. Skirmish near Hedgesville. Union troops capture the entire party of 37 Confederate raiders attempting to burn the Back Creek Bridge.
