Georgia. Incidents at Brush Mountain and Lost Mountain.

Mud Creek & Noyes’ Creek, Georgia, also known as Noyses’ Creek or Nose Creek. Confederate General Joseph Eggleston Johnston and the Army of Tennessee evacuated Lost Mountain and Brush Mountain after they were threatened with envelopment from the direction of the dominant Pine Mountain. A new line was established on Kennesaw Mountain, two miles behind Pine Mountain. The army occupied the new line while Major-General Joseph Wheeler’s Cavalry Corps guarded the right flank, and Brigadier-General William Hicks Jackson’s cavalry division covered the left flank.

Confederate Lieutenant-General John Bell Hood’s Corps occupied the right face of the mountainous ridge on its northern flank and astride the Western & Atlantic Railroad. Lieutenant-General William Joseph Hardee’s corps entrenched on the left flank, and Major-General William Wing Loring’s III Corps took over the centre. Hardee extended his outposts to block the roads toward Marietta from Burnt Hickory and Dallas. The Confederate supply depot was established at Smyrna, four miles away on the railroad. After Union Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman’s armies followed up they began a long-range artillery duel and probing actions occurred at Mud Creek and at Noyes’ Creek.

Virginia. Skirmishes at Bermuda Hundred, Liberty, Malvern Hill, Otter Creek, Pierson’s Farm, and Port Walthall.

Virginia. Union Major-General David Hunter had been expecting help from Major-General Philip Henry Sheridan’s two cavalry divisions for his advance to Lynchburg. When he heard of Sheridan’s setback at Trevilian Station and that he had turned away in the direction of Richmond, Hunter’s concern grew. Hunter’s supply lines were being harassed continually by the raiders of 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry under Lieutenant-Colonel John S Mosby. Between 20 May and 17 June, only one supply wagon had safely run the gauntlet to reach Hunter.

New London, Virginia. During the afternoon Confederate Brigadier-General John McCausland fell back to New London and skirmished with Union Brigadier-General William Woods Averell’s pursuing cavalry. The Union launched another attack during the evening on McCausland and Brigadier-General John Daniel Imboden, who had arrived to reinforce McCausland. The Confederates retreated and abandoned New London, heading for the Quaker Meeting House near Lynchburg.

Quaker Meeting House, Virginia. Confederate Major-General John Cabell Breckinridge arrived in Lynchburg where Major-General Daniel Harvey Hill and Brigadier-General Harry Thompson Hays constructed a defensive line in the hills just southwest of the city. Confederate Lieutenant-General Jubal Anderson Early arrived in Lynchburg at 1 pm, having been sent by General Robert Edward Lee to take command over all the forces in the Shenandoah Valley.

Three hours later, Union Brigadier-General William Woods Averell’s cavalry again engaged Brigadier-General John McCausland’s and Brigadier-General John Daniel Imboden’s dismounted cavalry entrenched at the Quaker Meeting House, four miles from the city. The Confederates were driven back after Colonel Carr B White’s brigade advanced to support Averell’s advance guard. Two brigades of Confederate Major-General Stephen Dodson Ramseur’s division occupied the area around a redoubt two miles from the city and hindered the further advance of the Union cavalry. Union Major-General David Hunter placed his headquarters at Sandusky and planned to attack Early’s defences in the morning. However, during the night, Hunter’s troops heard trains moving up and down the tracks and commands issued by bugles and drums. Even the people of Lynchburg made noise by having bands play and citizens scream. Their goal was to deceive the Union commanders into imagining that the Confederate army was larger than it really was; and that it was being heavily reinforced by rail.

Virginia. Union Lieutenant-General Ulysses Simpson Grant established his headquarters at City Point and made this riverside landing the primary base of supplies for operations south of the James River.

Virginia. Union Brigadier-General James Harrison Wilson’s cavalry division, which had been operating north of the James River with V Corps to screen the crossing of the river by the Army of the Potomac, moved along the southern bank and concentrated near City Point.

Second Petersburg, Virginia, also known as Petersburg. The Union V Corps under Major-General Gouverneur Kemble Warren arrived in front of Petersburg during the morning and was deployed on the Union left flank. Warren was ordered to march to the far left as far as the Jerusalem Plank Road and then northwards into the undefended city. When he crossed the Norfolk & Petersburg Railroad Warren was forced to deploy against a strong skirmish line and deviated some distance short of his intended direction to follow the route of the railroad rather than the plank road. The advance degenerated into long-range skirmishing and the opportunity to enter Petersburg unopposed from this direction was squandered.

Further north, a surprise dawn attack by two brigades of Union Brigadier-General Robert Brown Potter’s division (2/IX) caught the Confederate defenders around the hill at Shand House asleep on their arms and netted a huge haul of 600 prisoners and twelve guns. Initially successful, the attack captured nearly a mile of the Confederate fortifications. When Potter’s men moved forward again, they found a second line of entrenchments and failed to make further progress. Their mobility was limited because of tangled logs blocking a ravine behind them. 

The other two divisions of IX Corps had not been put on alert and it was not until 2 pm that the IX Corps launched a second attack alongside Potter, led by the brigade of Brigadier-General John Frederick Hartranft (1/3/IX). They were sent forward at an angle to the Confederate line, leaving them vulnerable to enfilading fire. They occupied some further stretches of the defences but were unable to penetrate into the city, losing some 840 of their 1,890 men in their unsuccessful assault. In the evening, Brigadier-General James Hewitt Ledlie’s division of IX Corps also failed in an assault, during which Ledlie was widely reported to be drunk. Confederate Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard launched a counter-attack against IX Corps with Brigadier-General Archibald Gracie’s brigade and recaptured some of the lost positions. The Confederates held on to Redan No 3 on their extreme left, and the line from the Shand House southwards (Redan Nos 15 to 23) on their right until midnight.

On Burnside’s right, the Union II Corps of Major-General Winfield Scott Hancock remained largely passive. During the day, Beauregard’s Confederate engineers began to mark out new defensive positions a mile to the west of the Dimmock Line, running along a creek named Taylor’s Branch as far as the Appomattox. During the night, the Confederates left pickets with campfires burning while they pulled back to this shorter and more defensible line laid out during the daytime. The troops set to work to improve their new defences with improvised tools.

The Union VI Corps of Major-General Horatio Gouverneur Wright was also uninvolved, so one of his divisions was sent to bolster the exhausted XVIII Corps on the right flank. Two more of Wright’s divisions crossed the Appomattox to join the troops in the Bermuda Hundred “bottle”. The bulk of Union XVIII Corps under Major-General William Farrar Smith had already marched back to hold the Bermuda Hundred line and they were now joined by Wright’s two divisions. Smith and Wright were planning to attack the Confederate Howlett Line stretched across the Bermuda Hundred peninsula, but the arrival of the two Confederate divisions of Major-General George Edward Pickett and Major-General Charles William Field from north of the James caused the attack to be cancelled in the morning. The Confederates had pressed forward during the afternoon and reoccupied the Howlett Line in the presence of the supine Union troops.

The Confederate III Corps under Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill began to arrive from north of the James River during the afternoon. They were stationed initially around Chafin’s Bluff where they could move towards either Petersburg or Richmond as urgency required. Union Captain (formerly Brigadier-General) James St Clair Morton, the Chief Engineer of IX Corps, was shot in the chest and killed while surveying the area in front of Major-General Orlando Bolivar Willcox’s division of VI Corps.

West Virginia. Incident at Spencer.
