Ebenezer Creek, GA

Siege of Petersburg

Hood’s Invasion of Tennessee – Nashville & Murfreesboro

Sherman’s March to the Sea

Alabama. Skirmish near Paint Rock Bridge.

Alabama. USS Narcissus, Acting Ensign William G Jones, struck a Confederate torpedo in a heavy storm while lying off the city of Mobile. The explosion lifted the ship nearly out of the water and broke a large hole amidships in the starboard side, causing the vessel to sink within about fifteen minutes. The tug sank without loss of life and was raised later in the month.

Arkansas. Expedition from Brownsville to Arkansas Post began.

Arkansas. Expedition from Devall’s Bluff to Augusta began.

Ebenezer Creek, Georgia, also known as Cypress Swamp. Union Major-General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick engaged Major-General Joseph Wheeler’s cavalry in a skirmish at Ebenezer Creek.

Missouri. Union troops killed a Confederate saboteur attempting to burn Moselle Bridge on the Southwest Branch of the Pacific Railroad near Franklin.

North Carolina. The blockade-running steamer Stormy Petrel was run ashore and fired upon by gunboats of the blockading squadron while attempting to enter Wilmington. Stormy Petrel was destroyed a few days later by a gale.

Tennessee. Incident at Nashville.

Third Murfreesboro, Tennessee, also known as Murfreesboro or Wilkinson Pike, Wilkinson’s Cross Roads or Cedars. Confederate Major-General Nathan Bedford Forrest was commanding his own cavalry and the infantry of Major-General William Brimage Bate’s division outside Murfreesboro. Two more infantry brigades arrived from Nashville under Brigadier-General Claudius Wistar Sears (detached from Major-General Samuel Gibb French’s division) and Brigadier-General Joseph Benjamin Palmer’s (detached from Major-General Carter Littlepage Stevenson’s division). Forrest concentrated his troops behind a creek at Salem about five miles southwest of the town with his skirmishers within half a mile of the town. Forrest hoped to attack again but the prospects were poor. He then hoped to lure the garrison out to attack him so that they might be engaged on more even terms. Union Major-General Lovell Harrison Rousseau complied with his latter wish and sent out two provisional brigades under Brigadier-General Robert Huston Milroy (Colonel M T Thomas’ and Colonel Edward Anderson’s brigades) with about 3,325 men. They made a reconnaissance along the Salem Pike. These troops made contact with the Confederate line on the Salem Pike soon after 10 am. Six guns from Captain Bundy’s 13th New York Battery engaged the Confederates across an open field, but they could not draw the Confederates to attack them. Milroy withdrew from the fight until Fortress Rosecrans was in his rear and he sent the battery back to replenish its ammunition.

The Union force formed in two lines, with Thomas’ brigade in front, protected by a skirmish line of the 61st Illinois Infantry, and Anderson’s brigade behind. They advanced again and pushed the Confederates back into a wooded area, but the attack wavered until the 178th Ohio Infantry pushed forward successfully on the left and the rest of Anderson’s brigade took up the momentum. Forrest was poised to strike the Union flanks with his cavalry as soon as Bate’s infantry had pinned the enemy in front, but Bate could not induce his infantry, still demoralised from the assaults at Franklin, to advance. Bundy’s battery rejoined Milroy’s troops in time to break up an attempted flank attack by cavalry against the advancing troops. Some of Bate’s troops broke and begin to retreat in panic, causing disorder in the Confederate rank. All the efforts of Forrest and Bate could not stem the rout of these units. The rest of Forrest’s command conducted an orderly retreat from the field and encamped for the night outside Murfreesboro.

Rousseau ordered Milroy to withdraw back to the fortifications as he feared a threat of more Confederates reinforcements arriving from Nashville. The fear was well founded for Confederate Brigadier-General Abraham Buford’s cavalry division arrived and rode towards Murfreesboro. Lacking support and the strength to challenge the defences, they withdrew. Forrest kept Smith’s infantry brigade and continued to raid blockhouses along the railroad for another week, but the majority of the infantry was sent back to rejoin the army at Nashville. The garrison of Murfreesboro proved entirely sufficient to hold out unaided and the gambit to lure the Union garrison out of Nashville to rescue Murfreesboro had failed. Union casualties were reported as 225 including 22 killed and 186 wounded while the Confederates reported 19 killed and 73 wounded. The Union reported capturing 197 prisoners and 2 guns. (CWSAC Limited Battle Union Victory)

Virginia. Expedition to Hickford and Hatcher’s Run began. Union Major-General Gouverneur Kemble Warren and V Corps, reinforced by Brigadier-General Gershom Mott’s division (3/II), and Brigadier-General David McMurtrie Gregg’s cavalry division, commenced a five-day expedition to destroy the Petersburg & Weldon Road. They planned to wreck the tracks as far south as Hicksford, forty miles from Petersburg. Their primary objective was the crossing of the Meherrin River, twenty miles from the Confederate depot of Stony Creek, at the start of the wagon road.

Virginia. After hearing that the Union VI Corps was leaving the Shenandoah Valley to join the siege at Petersburg, Confederate General Robert Edward Lee sent for two of the divisions of II Corps to return from the Shenandoah Valley. Lieutenant-General Jubal Anderson Early was left to hold the Shenandoah Valley with just the division of Brigadier-General Gabriel Colvin Wharton and two cavalry brigades. Early sent back the divisions of Major-General John Brown Gordon and Brigadier-General John Pegram (formerly Ramseur’s) to Petersburg. Gordon took command of these two divisions of II Corps when they reached Petersburg, leaving Early in command in the Valley.
