Red River Campaign

Arkansas Campaign

Forrest’s Second West Tennessee Raid

Arkansas. Incidents at Osceola, Pemiscot Bayou and Little River.

Arkansas. Skirmish on the Arkansas River.

Arkansas. Skirmish near Prairie Grove.

Arkansas. Skirmish on the Little Missouri River.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Piney Mountain.

Arkansas. Union Major-General Frederick Steele’s column completed its crossing of the Little Missouri River at Elkin’s Ferry. Steele heard for the first time from Brigadier-General John Milton Thayer that he had been delayed by bad weather and worse roads and would reach Hot Springs within three days. Steele was forced to mark time for three more days, preparing the roads for Thayer’s approach, while his own army consumed more of its irreplaceable rations.

Illinois. Incident at Prairie du Rocher.

Louisiana. The Louisiana state constitutional convention met in New Orleans and adopted a new state constitution, abolishing slavery.

Louisiana. Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith met Lieutenant-General Richard Taylor at Mansfield for a military conference. Taylor urged the concentration of all available forces against Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks on the Red River, but Smith vacillated, anxious about the progress from the north of Union Major-General Frederick Steele. Steele had crossed the Little Missouri in Arkansas and his advance seemed as irresistible as that of Banks on the Red River. Smith considered a reversal of his plan with a concentration first against Steele rather than Banks, but Taylor insisted on the urgency and priority of the Red River campaign. Smith held back the 4,500 infantrymen in Major-General Thomas James Churchill’s division twenty miles away at Keatchie while he wavered. Taylor decided to act nevertheless, using the 9,000 men of his own small command and the 2,500 cavalrymen of Brigadier-General Thomas Green, who had just arrived from Texas.

Taylor continued to retreat ahead of Banks to Pleasant Hill when he was joined by #Green’s newly formed cavalry division. Green had brigades under Brigadier-General Hamilton Prioleau Bee, Brigadier-General James Patrick Major, and Brigadier-General Arthur Pendleton Bagby. Green took over the rear-guard while Taylor fell back further to the vicinity of Mansfield. Infantry reinforcements were within twenty miles at Keatchie in the brigades of Brigadier-General Mosby Monroe Parsons and Brigadier-General James Camp Tappan, both from Brigadier-General Thomas James Churchill’s division. However, these brigades were kept stationary by the order of General Edmund Kirby Smith,

Louisiana. Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks left Natchitoches for the final stage of his advance to Shreveport. He embarked Brigadier-General Thomas Kilby Smith’s division on twenty transports escorted by six vessels from Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter’s river fleet, while he began to march overland with his remaining force. The land column and naval force were to rendezvous on 9 April at Springfield Landing, and only twenty miles from – and two-thirds of the way to – Shreveport.

The two groups diverged at Grand Ecore for the first time in the campaign, as the marching column headed west then northwest away from the River towards Pleasant Hill and Mansfield. Banks was unaware of a good road running parallel to the river and chose the straighter inland route. However, heavy rain turned this road into a mud-bound ditch but inexplicably the wells and watercourses remained short of water. Banks brought along a supply train with a thousand wagons to supply the troops through this barely cultivated territory. The cavalry led the column, followed by its forage train of 300 wagons and then three infantry divisions of Major-General William Buel Franklin. Franklin’s fourth division remained at Alexandria to expedite and protect the movement of supplies. After these three divisions came 700 more wagons guarded by the Corps d’Afrique. Two of Brigadier-General Andrew Jackson Smith’s divisions brought up the rear while his third division rode on the river transports. The march was so slow and the column so long that Smith’s force didn’t even get on the road until the following day.

Tennessee. Confederate Major-General Nathan Bedford Forrest proposed to General Joseph Eggleston Johnston that all available cavalry in the western theatre should be concentrated for a massive raid on the main Union supply depot at Nashville, dismantling the lines of communications of the Union armies in Georgia. In the meantime, he made plans to attack the smaller depot at Fort Pillow on the Mississippi River.

Texas. USS Estrella, Lieutenant-Commander Augustus P Cooke, captured the mail schooner Julia A Hodges in Matagorda Bay.
