Louisiana. After eight days of gruelling work, Union Colonel Joseph Bailey and his regiments of Maine and New York soldiers completed a dam across the Red River at Alexandria. The aim was to save the Mississippi naval squadron marooned above the rapids by raising the water level.

Missouri. Union troops attacked a Confederate guerrilla camp on Bee Creek.

Tennessee. Union reconnaissance in Hickman County and Maury County began.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Bolivar.

Texas. USS Katahdin, Lieutenant-Commander J Irwin, continued its pursuit of four blockade runners heading out to sea from Galveston. Having fired all of its shells, USS Katahdin turned back to rejoin the blockading fleet off Galveston. All of the blockade-runners were laden with cotton. The steamer Alice threw 300 bales overboard to increase speed during the chase, but all four ultimately evaded capture.

Virginia. Incident at Upperville.

Virginia. At the beginning of the Virginia campaign, Union forces totalled 118,700 men and 316 guns organised in three Corps of the Army of the Potomac, under Major-General George Gordon Meade, and the attached IX Corps, recently transferred from the Army of the Ohio.

The II Corps under Major-General Winfield Scott Hancock had the four divisions of Major-General David Bell Birney, Brigadier-General Francis Channing Barlow, Brigadier-General John Gibbon, and Brigadier-General Gershom Mott. The V Corps under Major-General Gouverneur Kemble Warren, had the four divisions of Brigadier-General Charles Griffin, Brigadier-General John Cleveland Robinson, Brigadier-General Samuel Wylie Crawford, and Brigadier-General James Samuel Wadsworth. The VI Corps under Major-General John Sedgwick had the three divisions of Brigadier-General Horatio Gouverneur Wright, Brigadier-General George Washington Getty, and Brigadier-General James Brewerton Ricketts. The IX Corps under Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside had the four divisions of Brigadier-General Thomas Greeley Stevenson, Brigadier-General Robert Brown Potter, Brigadier-General Orlando Bolivar Willcox, and Brigadier-General Edward Ferrero. The Cavalry Corps under Major-General Philip Henry Sheridan had the three divisions of Brigadier-General Alfred Thomas Archimedes Torbert, Brigadier-General David McMurtrie Gregg, and Brigadier-General James Harrison Wilson.

Virginia. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee met his commanders on Clark Mountain, where they could obtain a panoramic view of the Union camps north of the Rapidan River. Lee realised that the Union Army of the Potomac was getting ready to attack, but he did not know the precise route of their intended advance. He correctly predicted that Grant would cross to the east of the Confederate fortifications along the Rapidan, using Germanna Ford and Ely Ford. To retain flexibility of response, Lee had dispersed his Army of Northern Virginia over a wide front. His I Corps was around Gordonsville, from where they could move reinforcements by railroad to oppose potential threats in the Shenandoah Valley or around Richmond. Lee’s headquarters and III Corps were located centrally around Orange Court House. The II Corps was placed the furthest east, near to the Wilderness region, at Morton’s Ford. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia comprised about 64,000 men and 274 guns.

The I Corps under Lieutenant-General James Longstreet had the two divisions of Major-General Charles William Field and Brigadier-General Joseph Brevard Kershaw. The II Corps under Lieutenant-General Richard Stoddert Ewell had the three divisions of Major-General Jubal Anderson Early, Major-General Edward Johnson, and Major-General Robert Emmett Rodes. The III Corps under Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill had the three divisions of Major-General Richard Heron Anderson, Major-General Henry Heth, and Major-General Cadmus Marcellus Wilcox. The Cavalry Corps under Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart had the three divisions of Major-General Wade Hampton, Major-General Fitzhugh Lee, and Major-General William Henry Fitzhugh Lee.

West Virginia. Union expedition to the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad began.

West Virginia. Union Brigadier-General George Crook set out from Gauley Bridge with 6,000 infantrymen and twelve guns to raid the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad. Their route would follow the rugged Kanawha Valley and then turn southwards along the left bank of New River to Dublin Station. The raiders would need to cover over a hundred miles of inhospitable terrain. Most of the Confederate forces in southwestern Virginia were currently being drawn away eastwards to board trains for Staunton, from where they could march north to defend the Shenandoah Valley against the southward advance of Major-General Franz Sigel from Winchester.
