USS Galena, Port Royal, and Satellite were ordered to cover the withdrawal of McClelland’s left wing from Harrison’s Landing over the Chickahominy River.
The Confederate steamer A. Bee ran aground in the Nueces River Estuary, and was burned to prevent capture.
Out at Lone Jack, Jackson County, MO, Federal Major Emory J. Foster led an attack on a Confederate camp at about 2100 scattering the men in camp. Confederate Colonel J. T. Coffee was quick to reform his man and attacked the following morning. After five hours of fighting and the loss of Foster the Confederate force reappeared causing Federal Captain M. H. Brawer (Foster’s successor) to order retreat. The encounter was a clear Confederate victory.
