Mississippi. Union Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman’s forces began to leave Canton to return slowly to Vicksburg.

New Mexico Territory. Reconnaissance to Camp Mimbres ended.

North Carolina. The ironclad ram CSS Albemarle was reported to be close to completion. The boilers would be tested on 5 March 1864. The iron was installed on the hull and the first layers of armour plate were being attached to the shield, whenever iron was available. The rudder was in place and the shell room and magazine ready.  The ship was safely afloat and was expected to have a draught when complete of between 7 and 8 feet. The guns and their equipment had not yet arrived but were expected on 4 March. The ironclad CSS Albemarle was finally launched on 17 April 1864.

Tennessee. Expedition to Cumberland Mountain and Gallatin ended.

Tennessee. Union troops captured some Confederate raiders disrupting the Paducah Railroad at Dukedom.

Texas. USS Penobscot, Lieutenant-Commander Andrew F K Benham, seized the British schooner Lilly as it attempted to run the blockade at Velasco with a cargo of powder.

Virginia. Union reconnaissance in Gloucester County.

Virginia. Skirmishes at Ely’s Ford and Sprigg’s Ford.

Virginia. Union Brigadier-General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick had obtained permission from President Abraham Lincoln to raid the Confederate capital of Richmond. The aim was to free prisoners of war that were reported to be held in poor conditions at Libby Prison, and to distribute proclamations offering amnesty in order to undermine Confederate resistance. A plan to kidnap or execute members of the Confederate government was also considered but dismissed.

At 11 pm, Kilpatrick left his encampments at Stevensburg with 3,584 picked men and six guns and crossed the Rapidan at Ely’s Ford, after driving away the Confederate outposts. Colonel Ulric Dahlgren, son of Rear Admiral John Adolphus Bernard Dahlgren, commanded an advance force of 500 men with a special mission. Dahlgren’s party was to enter Richmond clandestinely from the rear and to release prisoners held at Belle Isle.

Albemarle, Virginia. As a diversion from the Kilpatrick-Dahlgren Raid to Richmond, Union Brigadier-General George Armstrong Custer’s 3rd Cavalry Division continued its raid in Albemarle County. A brigade of 1,500 men crossed forty miles upstream from Ely’s Ford and headed for Charlottesville. In the early afternoon, Custer advanced towards Charlottesville with orders to destroy a railroad bridge across the Rivanna River. Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s ordered his horse artillery and infantrymen stationed near the Rivanna River at Carsbrook to repel the incursion. Custer overran the artillery camp of Captain Robert Preston Chew and Captain Marcellus Newton Moorman. The Union forces looted the camp and set fire to it and captured two Confederate soldiers. When a Confederate artillery piece exploded unexpectedly, Custer believed it was the sound of enemy reinforcements and left. The Confederate troops regrouped and pursued Custer out of Albemarle County.
