June 7 1864 Tuesday

Atlanta Campaign – Kennesaw

Virginia Overland Campaign – Cold Harbor

Forrest’s Second Tennessee Raid

Sturgis’ Operation against Forrest

Hunter’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign

Sheridan’s Trevilian Raid

Morgan’s East Kentucky Raid

Arizona Territory. A Union expedition from Fort Wingate, New Mexico Territory, to the Gila River, skirmished with Apache Indians on the San Carlos River. They surrounded a large party of Apaches who claimed to be peaceful but they refused to be taken to a reservation and fled. The soldiers killed fifteen Apaches and the remainder scattered into the mountains.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Walter’s Plantation.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Sunnyside Landing.

Arkansas. Before leaving Lake Village, Union Brigadier-General Joseph Anthony Mower’s two brigades from XVI Corps burned the newspaper office, destroyed other buildings, looted homes, and shot livestock. They marched to Columbia on the Mississippi River, and burned that town also, before re-embarking aboard their vessels.

Florida. Suspecting that the Confederates were erecting cotton-bale breastworks on the banks of the Suwannee River, a Union boat expedition from USS Clyde and USS Sagamore, commanded by Acting Ensign Louis R Chester, proceeded up the river and seized the cotton in the vicinity of Clay Landing.

Georgia. Incident at Marietta.

Kentucky. Confederate Brigadier-General John Hunt Morgan’s raiders completed a 150-mile ride from south-western Virginia into the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky.

Louisiana. Occupation of Madisonville.

Maryland. The Republican Party convention started in Baltimore, and nominated the incumbent President Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson, a War Democrat and the Military Governor of Tennessee, as their election ticket. This decision slighted the incumbent Vice-President, Hannibal Hamlin.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Ripley.

Missouri. Confederate guerrillas raided New Frankfort in Saline County.

Missouri. Skirmish with Confederate guerrillas at Sikestown.

South Carolina. The Confederate transport steamer Etiwan ran aground off Fort Johnson and was sunk by Union batteries firing from Morris Island in Charleston harbour.

Virginia. Union Major-General Henry Wager Halleck advised Lieutenant-General Ulysses Simpson Grant that almost every available man had been sent to reinforce the Army of the Potomac, amounting to over 48,000 men since the campaign began at the beginning of May. He warned that no further reinforcements would be forthcoming unless and until there was another conscription draft. Another option for reinforcements was to withdraw the remainder of the Army of the James from Bermuda Hundred but Grant decided that these 10,000 troops would be more valuable making a diversionary operation towards Port Walthall Junction. Meanwhile, Grant continued his preparations to march his army to the James River, to cross by a new pontoon bridge and to relocate the main line of operations south of the river.

Virginia. After two days of negotiation Union Lieutenant-General Ulysses Simpson Grant finally came to an agreement to recover the Union wounded from the battlefield of Cold Harbor. By the time a two-hour cessation of hostilities was arranged, it was too late for most of the casualties.

Virginia. During the morning, Union Major-General Philip Henry Sheridan and two cavalry divisions, led by Brigadier-General Alfred Thomas Archimedes Torbert and Brigadier-General David McMurtrie Gregg, left Cold Harbor. They headed north to follow the North Anna River, hoping to cross the river to strike the Virginia Central Railroad. They aimed ultimately to reach Charlottesville where they intended to combine with the forces of Major-General David Hunter from the Shenandoah Valley. They marched for two days in the heat of midsummer and left many of their horses behind, either exhausted or dead.

Virginia. Learning of the defeat and death of Brigadier-General William Edmondson Jones at Piedmont, Confederate General Robert Edward Lee detached Major-General John Cabell Breckinridge with two brigades of 2,100 men to head by rail for Rockfish Gap, west of Charlottesville. Breckinridge was instructed to resume his command of the Department of Western Virginia and to reinforce Brigadier-General John Crawford Vaughn who was in headlong retreat with the remnants of Jones’ command. The combined force would then attempt to recapture Lynchburg.
