March 25 1864 Friday

Battle of Paducah, KY (CWSAC Formative Battle – Confederate Victory)

Red River Campaign

Arkansas Campaign

Forrest’s Second West Tennessee Raid

USA. US Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles called President Abraham Lincoln’s attention to the scarcity of seamen and suggested the transfer of 12,000 men from the Army to the Navy. The transfer was achieved later in the year.

Arkansas. Reconnaissance to Arkansas Line ended.

Arkansas. Union Reconnaissance from Batesville to Fairview began.

Arkansas. Incidents at Rockport.

Arkansas. A skirmish on the White River resulted in the liberation of some Union prisoners of war.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Dover.

Arkansas. Skirmish in Van Buren County.

Arkansas. Union Major-General Frederick Steele’s expeditionary force crossed the Saline River and continued south-westwards through rainy weather towards the Ouachita River.

Paducah, Kentucky. Confederate Major-General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s 2,800 to 3,000 raiders arrived in Paducah shortly after midday, following a march covering a hundred miles in fifty hours. They quickly occupied the town. The objective was to capture the supply depot rather than the Union garrison of 650 to 665 men under the command of Colonel Stephen G Hicks. Hicks withdrew to Fort Anderson at the town’s western end, where he could receive support from the gunboats USS Paw Paw, Acting Lieutenant A Frank O’Neil, and USS Peosta, Acting Lieutenant Thomas E Smith, both directed by Lieutenant-Commander James W Shirk on the Ohio River. Hicks refused to surrender and the gunboats shelled the surrounding area with his artillery, confident that Forrest would not assault the defences.

A large number of Confederates took shelter in warehouses near the river and opened fire against the gunboats, inflicting some injuries, but they were soon dislodged by gunfire. Forrest held the city for ten hours, destroying the Union headquarters and the buildings housing the quartermaster and commissary. A small regiment of Kentuckians in Forrest’s command (3rd Kentucky Cavalry) assaulted Fort Anderson but were repulsed, suffering 25 casualties including Colonel Albert P Thompson, who was killed. Soon afterwards, Forrest’s men withdrew to the southwest in the direction of Mayfield.

Forrest captured a 200 horses and mules before withdrawing to Mayfield. When reporting the raid on the town, Unionists newspapers scoffed that Forrest had found fewer than a hundred horses hidden in a foundry and that Forrest had only stolen the horses of private citizens. This prompted Forrest to repeat the raid in April.

Total casualties were reported as 90 Union (14 killed, 26 wounded and 50 prisoners) and 50 Confederates (10 killed and 40 wounded). (CWSAC Formative Battle – Confederate Victory)

Kentucky. Unionist newspapers bragged after the raid on Paducah that Union forces had hidden the best horses in the area and duped Major-General Nathan Bedford Forrest. They claimed that Forrest had only captured horses stolen from private citizens. Forrest furiously ordered Brigadier-General Abraham Buford to prepare a new punitive raid into Kentucky. Returning to Mayfield, Forrest first gave Buford’s three Kentucky regiments a furlough to rest, recruit more volunteers from home and to find new mounts. The refreshed Kentuckians returned to a man a week later to rendezvous with Forrest at Trenton on 4 April and began their Kentucky Raid.

CONFEDERATE ORDER OF BATTLE: PADUCAH, KY

Confederate Department of Alabama and East Mississippi: Major-General Stephen Dill Lee
District of West Tennessee: Major-General Nathan Bedford Forrest
Buford’s Cavalry Division (Alabama & East Mississippi): Brigadier-General Abraham Buford
Buford’s Brigade, Buford’s Cavalry Division (Alabama & East Mississippi): Colonel E Crossland
Bell’s Brigade, Buford’s Cavalry Division (Alabama & East Mississippi): Colonel Tyree H Bell

Louisiana. Five Union divisions assigned to Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks’ Red River campaign began to converge in Alexandria, eight days behind the planned schedule. This represented the largest force ever assembled west of the Mississippi River, with 30,000 men and 90 guns. They were supported by a fleet of twenty-two warships and forty transport ships. Banks heard that Union Major-General Frederick Steele had left Little Rock two days earlier to join him in the attack on Shreveport. The preparations to concentrate forces for a decisive expedition along the Red River were now complete.

Missouri. Reconnaissance to Pilot Knob ended.

North Carolina. Expedition to Bear Inlet and Bogue Inlet began.

North Carolina. A Union expedition of 200 soldiers under Colonel James Jourdan (158th New York Infantry) was transported by the side-wheel steamer USS Britannia to capture or destroy two schooners used in blockade running at Swansboro, and to drive off a Confederate force on the south end of Bogue Island Banks. They were supported by the gunboats USS Keystone State, USS Florida, and USS Cambridge under Commander Benjamin M Dove. Arriving off Bogue Inlet late at night, the expedition encountered high winds and heavy seas which prevented their landing on the beach.

South Carolina. Union Major-General Quincy Adams Gillmore reported that the Army was operating five steam transport ships on picket duty in the vicinity of Port Royal, but he had no naval officer qualified or experienced officers to outfit and command them. The masters were citizens who had a knowledge of artillery while the gunners were not sailors and were unacquainted with naval gunnery. He requested a competent Naval officer from the blockading squadron to command these ships and an officer was assigned.

McClellansville, South Carolina. A Union boat expedition from USS Winona, Lieutenant-Commander A W Weaver, under Acting Master Edward H Sheffield, captured the blockade runner Little Ada loading cotton at McClellansville in the South Santee River. The attack was deep inside Confederate-held territory and had begun in darkness. When daylight broke, accurate Confederate artillery fire was opened on the vessel. The damaged prize had to be abandoned to prevent the capture of the boarding party.

Confederate Organisation

CSA: The Department of Tennessee was redefined to extend from Gunter’s Landing on the Tennessee River in a direct line to Gadsden on the Coosa River; then down the Coosa to its junction with the Tallapoosa River; then in a direct line to the Florida state line on the Chattahoochee River, and down that river to the Gulf. The Department of Tennessee lay east of this line and the Department of Alabama, Mississippi and Eastern Louisiana to the west of it.
