Siege of Petersburg

Hood’s Operations in Northern Alabama

USA: The Union XIX Corps (Gulf) was discontinued. The elements of 1st Division and 2nd Division, known as ‘Detachment XIX Corps’ while serving in the Shenandoah Valley, were now officially designated as XIX Corps (Shenandoah). The lone 3rd Division of XIX Corps in Louisiana had retained the title of XIX Corps (Gulf) in the interim, but this designation was discontinued when the division was assigned to the Gulf Reserve Corps. Major-General Joseph Jones Reynolds retained interim command of the forces in the region pending the activation of the Gulf Reserve Corps.

CSA. The second session of the Second Confederate Congress opened in Richmond and began the final government session of the Confederate States of America.

Alabama. Confederate Major-General Benjamin Franklin Cheatham’s Corps crossed the Tennessee River from Tuscumbia to Florence. Union Brigadier-General John Thomas Croxton’s cavalry brigade had been observing the crossing at Florence but it was now forced to withdraw as Confederate strength increased.

Colorado Territory. Incident at Fort Lyon.

Georgia. Incident at Cassville.

Georgia. The Union XVI Corps (both the Left Wing and the Right Wing) was discontinued. Brigadier-General Andrew Jackson Smith remained in command of the 1st and 3rd divisions of the former Right Wing XVI Corps, which were now officially renamed “Detachment, Army of the Tennessee”.  Smith had recently been operating in Missouri to oppose Confederate Major-General Sterling Prices’ Missouri Raid. The Left Wing of XVI Corps had ceased to exist in practice when the 2nd Division and 4th Division in Georgia were transferred into other commands. Meanwhile, at Atlanta, Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman made an arrangement to regroup his forces for the campaign across Georgia. Smith’s Detachments, the XV Corps, and XVII Corps, remained part of the Army of the Tennessee under Major-General Oliver Otis Howard. The XX Corps and XIV Corps, both officially in of the Army of the Cumberland, were reassigned unofficially to a new “Army of Georgia”. The bulk of the Army of the Cumberland was now far distant, operating in Tennessee under Major-General George Henry Thomas. It was impossible for Thomas to direct these two corps detached at Atlanta and Sherman did not want to subordinate them to Howard’s Army of the Tennessee. Instead, he assigned them to Major-General Henry Warner Slocum, who already commanded the XX Corps. This gave Sherman the convenience of two independent groups for his impending march across Georgia. By coincidence, Howard and Slocum had both arrived in the region after the transfer of their own XI Corps and XII Corps from Virginia in September 1863. These two Corps had subsequently been amalgamated to form Slocum’s XX Corps.

Indian Territory. Confederate Major-General Sterling Price crossed the Arkansas River at Tahlequah, aided by the Choctaws who destroyed all boats the on the river to prevent pursuit by Union Major-General Samuel Ryan Curtis.

Missouri. Reconnaissance to Callaway County ended.

North Carolina. CSS Olustee (formerly CSS Tallahassee), under the command of Lieutenant William H Ward CSN, eluded the blockade and returned to Wilmington after a brief but successful cruise. The raider had destroyed the bark Empress Theresa, the schooners A J Bird, F F Lewis, and Vapor, the ship Arcole, and the brig T D Wagner during the first three days of November. She had avoided an attempt by USS Sassacus to capture her on 6 November 1864 and then evaded four other US Navy ships before finally reaching safety in Wilmington harbour.

Virginia. Union reconnaissance to Stony Creek.

Virginia. Skirmish near Edenburg.

Virginia. Incident at Mills Point.

Virginia. The Union XIX Corps was reorganised after many months of operating as two segments in Virginia and Louisiana. The two divisions (1st Division and 2nd Division) which had been serving as the “Detachment, XIX Corps” in the Shenandoah Valley since July were formally renamed XIX Corps (Shenandoah). The 3rd Division in Louisiana, which had preserved the title of XIX Corps (Gulf), was transferred to the Gulf Reserve Corps.
