July 6 1864 Wednesday

Atlanta Campaign – Chattahoochee River

Siege of Petersburg

Early’s Washington Raid

A J Smith’s Tupelo Expedition

Jackson Expedition

Arizona Territory. Union reconnaissance from Fort Goodwin into south-eastern Arizona Territory began.

Arkansas. Incidents at Aberdeen.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Benton between Union troops returning from a scout Norristown and Confederate guerrillas.

Florida. Incident at Station No 4.

Georgia. Incidents at Sandtown and Nickajack Creek.

Georgia. Confederate General Joseph Eggleston Johnston’s army remained in prepared defences around Vining Station north of the Chattahoochee River. The line was six miles long and extended either side of the vital railroad bridges of the Western & Atlantic Railroad. The Confederates had constructed five more pontoon bridges, which provided two bridges for each of his three corps to retreat over the unfordable river. South of the river there was another line of defences and Johnston sent his wagons and trains there for safety. Cavalry was posted to left and right, along the crossings of the Chattahoochee River.

Georgia. Union Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman observed the Confederate lines from Vining Hill and began to plan how to cross the Chattahoochee River without having to make a costly assault against the well-prepared defences. The first step was to resume the repair of the railroad and to accumulate of supplies at Marietta and Smyrna. He faced the Confederate line with the Army of the Cumberland and the Army of the Tennessee, while the Army of the Ohio was held back in reserve, alert for a movement towards either flank as soon as a convenient crossing point was identified.

Maryland. Incident at Maryland Heights.

Maryland. Confederate troops under Brigadier-General John McCausland entered Hagerstown. McCausland levied a tribute of $20,000 on the residents of Hagerstown in recompense for the destruction inflicted on the Shenandoah Valley by Union Major-General David Hunter.

Maryland. Skirmish at Antietam.

Maryland. The Confederate army of Lieutenant-General Jubal Anderson Early crossed the Potomac River at Boteler’s Ford near Shepherdstown. This was the first occasion when the commanding Union generals, Major-General Henry Wager Halleck and Lieutenant-General Ulysses Simpson Grant were persuaded that Early’s intention was to make a serious invasion into northern territory.

Maryland. Lieutenant-General Ulysses Simpson Grant responded to the Confederate crossing of the Potomac River by sending strong reinforcements from the Army of the Potomac to protect Washington, DC. Two brigades of the VI Corps, with about 5,000 men under Brigadier-General James Brewerton Ricketts, boarded transports at City Point. They were joined by 3,000 dismounted cavalrymen whose horses had broken down under heavy service. The ships headed for Baltimore. Until those troops could arrive, the only Union force between Early and the capital city were about 6,300 men, mostly inexperienced troops and militiamen on short-term enlistments, commanded by Major-General Lewis Wallace.

Mississippi. Incident at Bolivar.

Mississippi. Union Major-General Henry Warner Slocum reached Jackson with the Red River division (1/XVII) and destroyed the bridge over the Pearl River.

Missouri. Union expedition in western Missouri began under Major-General Samuel Ryan Curtis.

Missouri. Reconnaissance to Big Piney ended.

Missouri. Confederate Captain George Todd and his guerrilla band ambushed a Union patrol of the 2nd Colorado Cavalry near the Little Blue River in Jackson County. The Union troops were scattered, and eight Union soldiers were killed.

South Carolina. Incident at James Island.

Tennessee. Skirmish near Bolivar.

Virginia. Confederate Lieutenant-Colonel John Singleton Mosby’s raiders moved to divert Union attention from the invasion of Maryland, and engaged Union troops at Mount Zion Church, near Aldie.

West Virginia. Skirmish at Big Cacapon Bridge.

West Virginia. Skirmish at St John’s Run.
