January 4, 1861

Occupation of Mt. Vernon Arsenal.

A full week before Alabama secedes from the Union, Gov. A. B. Moore orders the seizure of federal military installations within the state. By the end of the next day Alabama troops controlled Fort Gaines, Fort Morgan, and the U.S. Arsenal at Mount Vernon.

Jan. 5, 1861

Seizure of Forts Morgan and Gaines by State Troops. Alabama militia forces moved against Fort Morgan at the entrance of Mobile Bay. Governor Moore of Alabama, ordered the occupation of Forts Morgan and Gaines. Colonel Todd of the Alabama militia procurred forces and steamboat to carry them down Mobile Bay to Fort Morgan.

 

January 11, 1861

Adoption of Secession Ordinance. The Alabama Secession Convention passes an Ordinance of Secession, declaring Alabama a “Sovereign and Independent State.” By a vote of 61-39, Alabama becomes the fourth state to secede from the Union.

February 4, 1861

Delegates from six states that had recently seceded from the Union meet in Montgomery to establish the Confederate States of America. Four days later this provisional Confederate Congress, comprising representatives of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina, organized the Confederacy with the adoption of a provisional constitution.

February 18, 1861

After being welcomed to Montgomery with great fanfare, Jefferson Davis is inaugurated as president of the Confederate States of America on the portico of the Alabama capitol.

March 4, 1861

The first Confederate flag is raised over the Alabama capitol at 3:30 PM by Letita Tyler, granddaughter of former U.S. president John Tyler. The flag, which flew on a flagpole by the capitol clock, was not the Confederate battle flag, but the “First National Pattern,” also known as the stars and bars.

Alabama. Operation at Athens, Elk River, Limestone Bridge, Mooresville, and Elk River ended.

Alabama. The brigade of Union Colonel John Basil Turchin arrived in Athens. After occupying the town Turchin assembled his three regiments and told them: “I shut my eyes for two hours. I see nothing.” Businesses were hit first by looters, and anything of value was stolen or destroyed. After rampaging through stores, the soldiers plundered private homes and a slave girl was raped. The soldiers also attempted to rape a servant girl. The violent behaviour of the soldiers caused a pregnant woman to suffer a miscarriage and die. The townspeople estimated the damage to be $55,000. When word of the outrageous misbehaviour reached Union Major-General Don Carlos Buell, Turchin offered to resign his commission. Buell refused to accept it, insisting instead on a court-martial as an example to others. Turchin’s court proceedings received national attention and became a focal point in the press for the wider debate on the degree of severity that was justified to conduct the war.

ALABAMA 51ST REGIMENT PARTISAN RANGERS

The 51st Alabama Cavalry Regiment, Partisan Rangers, was organized at Oxford on 11 August 1862, with men from Calhoun, Dallas, Mobile, Montgomery, Perry, Pike, Saint Clair, Talladega, and Tuscaloosa counties. Ordered to Tennessee, the regiment was placed under Gen’l Nathan Bedford Forrest and was in the fight at Lavergne. A few weeks later, it was assigned to Gen’l Joseph Wheeler’s command and served during the war principally in the brigades of Gen’l William W. Allen of Montgomery, or Gen’l James Hagan of Mobile. It was engaged in the Battle of Murfreesboro with light loss, and it was in the raid down the Cumberland River in January with like result. The regiment was engaged in frequent skirmishes while protecting Gen’l Braxton Bragg’s communications. It was in the fight at Shelbyville, where nearly half the regiment was killed or captured. The 51st fought at Tracey City and Chickamauga with few casualties, then it was part of the force that made the Sequatchee Raid, in which 1,000 wagons laden with stores were destroyed, and 4,000 mules were butchered. The regiment was part of the force that captured 400 of the enemy at Maryville, and soon after it was part of the investing force at Knoxville. During the remainder of the winter of 1863/1864, the 51st was arduously employed in East Tennessee. It took its place on Gen’l Joseph E. Johnston’s flank in the retreat to Dalton and fought nearly every day for three months. At Decatur and Jonesboro, the 51st was fully engaged, losing severely. It moved into Tennessee shortly after, then wheeled about and harassed Union Gen’l William T. Sherman’s march into the Carolinas with much effect. About a week before the capitulation, the 51st captured the 1st Alabama (Union) Regiment. As part of Gen’l Hagan’s Brigade, the regiment laid down its arms near Raleigh at Durham Station, 26 April 1865.

Gen. Dodge, commanding district of Corinth, reported on December 6, 1862 that “Roddey’s whole force is 10 miles east of me and on the move; it may be that the two intend to make a junction. My cavalry are all out east toward the river; am inclined to think they will be able to drive Roddey back”.

The expedition was commanded by Col. Thomas Sweeny. Sweeny’s 1st brigade included 52d Illinois, 65th Indiana, 2d Iowa, 7th Iowa. Confederate cavalry units participating included Roddey’s 4th, 5th, and 53rd Alabama cavalry regiments, Williams 22nd Alabama cavalry battalion.

Col. Thomas Sweeny, 1st brigade, District of Corinth, reported “I surprised the outpost of the enemy, consisting of 300 men, under Colonel Warren, at Cherokee, and pursued them 5 miles, fighting all the time, when they were reenforced by the main body, 1,400 strong, under Colonel Roddey, who, after a sharp engagement, took to flight and fell back on Little Bear creek, a very strong position, 4 miles from Tuscumbia, from which they were driven, after burning the bridge and all their stores and camp equipage. We captured 32 prisoners, a great number of horses, and small arms. Roddey had 4 pieces of artillery, 3 rifled cannon and 1 smooth-bore”.

Gen. Dodge, commanding District of Corinth, reported that Roddey “fell back toward Decatur and across the river to Florence. He has at Florence 2 flat-boats, good ones, and 2 small steamers that have been fitted up in the last 2 months. They now run. He is repairing boats at that place all the time, and his men say that he intends to make a raid down the river as soon as water will permit. His force is over 2,000. He has telegraphic, but not railroad, communication with Bragg. Colonel Sweeny used him up badly and brought in a large amount of his troops. Roddey burned his camps, stores, and also the fine covered bridge across Little Bear creek. The force is only an outpost of Bragg’s, but the steamers should be destroyed. Had he reached Glendale he would have hurt us”.

Buckhorn Tavern was the site of the skirmish on Oct. 12, 1863. Confederate General Phillip D. Roddey’s Alabama Cavalry Brigade was moving south from New Market when it intercepted Union General Robert Mitchell’s Cavalry Brigade, advancing northeast from Huntsville. A brisk firefight broke out, the opposing forces so close they could see each others’ faces by the muzzle flashes. Both sides hesitated to advance in the approaching darkness and heavy rain. The Union troops camped for the night in the woods; the Confederates retired to New Market. The next morning, Rodney’s Brigade rode on to Athens. The union cavalry did not pursue.

Operations, Forts Gaines and Morgan

A combined Union force initiated operations to close Mobile Bay to blockade running. Some Union forces landed on Dauphin Island and laid siege to Fort Gaines.
August 5, Farragut’s Union fleet of eighteen ships entered Mobile Bay and received a devastating fire from Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan and other points. After passing the forts, Farragut forced the Confederate naval forces, under Admiral Franklin Buchanan, to surrender, which effectively closed Mobile Bay.

By August 23, Fort Morgan, the last big holdout, fell, shutting down the port. The city, however, remained uncaptured.

Report of Major Lewis R. Stegman, One hundred and second New York Infantry:

HDQRS. 102nd NEW YORK VETERAN VOLUNTEERS,

Stevenson, Ala., April 12, 1864.

CAPTAIN: I have the honor to report that in conformity with the orders and instructions received from your headquarters, dated April 10, 1864, I proceeded with a detachment of 60 men and 3 commissioned officers to arrest several prominent citizens residing on the south bank of the Tennessee River, near Caperton’s Ferry.

The detachment commenced its march at 4 a. m. on the morning of the 11th, and proceeded directly to the north bank of the river. There, with the aid and assistance of Lieutenants Merriam and Brown, One hundred and forty-ninth New York Volunteers, we were quickly embarked in scow, dug-outs, and pontoon-boats, and, after much difficulty, succeed in effecting a crossing. Immediately upon reaching the south bank I deployed a strong line of skirmishers, under command of Lieutenant Kelsey, and marched swiftly up the road to our first point of destination. In the mean time, however, I had captured two young men lounging near the river bank, and impressing one to act as a guide I forwarded the other to the north bank under guard, to be held as hostage for the good behavior of his brother. We reached the residence of Mr. Hugh Caperton, and, discovering said person in an adjacent field, I immediately arrested him. Following the lower mountain road, under the direction of our guide, I filled to the right, halting for a movement at the house of a Mr. Marshall, a citizens desirous of taking the oath, and, after some conversation, gaining information, I proceeded onward, arresting Mr. Adam Caperton, and discovering by search and inquiry that Mr. Thomas Caperton, one of the parties noticed for arrest, was a soldier in the rebel service, and had not been at home or seen in his immediately neighborhood for several months past. Retracing our steps, throwing our another line of skirmishers to our then front and holding our former first line as rear guard, I advanced to the left of Mr. Hugh Caperton’s (as noted on appended diagram*) and advanced to the residence of Mr. John E. Caperton. This person I discovered to be absent from home, having gone to the top of the mountain. From searching inquiry I became convinced that this man has been endeavoring for more than a week to reach Stevenson for the purpose of taking the oath of allegiance. We then proceeded to the late residence of Mr. Sam. Norwood, finding, however, that he had long since vacated, removing to some inner county, his present place of residence. I arrested the man who at present occupies the premises first named, a person named John Loweree. The house noticed on the map as Norwood’s house, near the coal bank, on the mountain top, has been utterly destroyed by fire. In each case i made thorough investigation, searching the premisses for all articles contraband of war, but discovered nothing. Houses and outhouses, pens for animals, everything bearing the look of a depository for guns or Government property were diligently scrutinized, without effect.

Union forces then concentrated on Spanish Fort and Fort Blakely. By April 1, Union forces had enveloped Spanish Fort, thereby releasing more troops to focus on Fort Blakely. Brig. Gen. St. John R. Liddell, with about 4,000 men, held out against the much larger Union force until Spanish Fort fell on April 8, allowing Canby to concentrate 16,000 men for the attack on April 9. Sheer numbers breached the Confederate earthworks compelling the Confederates to capitulate. The siege and capture of Fort Blakely was basically the last combined-force battle of the war. African-American forces played a major role in the successful Union assault.
