was to attack the Union right flank, north of the Chickahominy River, before McDowell's corps, marching south from Fredericksburg (Fredericksburg, Virginia), could arrive. However, on May 27, the same day the Battle of Hanover Court House was fought northeast of Richmond, Johnston learned that McDowell's corps had been diverted to the Shenandoah Valley and would not be reinforcing the Army of the Potomac. He decided against attacking across his own natural defense line, the Chickahominy, and planned to capitalize on the Union army's straddle of the river by attacking the two corps south of the river, leaving them isolated from the other three corps north of the river. Salmon, pp. 20–21. On April 19, a detachment of the 8th Connecticut and the 89th New York landed on Hill's Point at the confluence of the forks of the Nansemond River. This amphibious force assaulted Fort Huger from the rear, quickly capturing its garrison, thus reopening the river to Union shipping. On April 24, Brig. Gen. (Brigadier general (United States)) Michael Corcoran's Union division mounted a reconnaissance-in-force from Fort Dix against Maj. Gen. (Major General (CSA)) George E. Pickett's extreme right flank. The Federals approached cautiously and were easily repulsed. On April 29, Gen. Robert E. Lee directed Longstreet to disengage from Suffolk (Suffolk, Virginia) and rejoin the Army of Northern Virginia at Fredericksburg (Fredericksburg, Virginia). By May 4, the last of Longstreet's command had crossed the Blackwater River en route to Richmond (Richmond, Virginia). Background When Maj. Gen. (Major general (United States)) Ambrose Burnside was relieved of command of the Union's Army of the Potomac (following the disastrous Battle of Fredericksburg in December 1862 and the fiasco of his Mud March (Mud March (American Civil War)) in January 1863), his replacement, Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker, immediately began reorganizing and training his army, in winter quarters outside of Fredericksburg (Fredericksburg, Virginia). One of his most significant actions was to combine smaller cavalry units, spread out across the army, into a single Cavalry Corps, led by Maj. Gen. George Stoneman. Up until this time, the Union cavalry had been consistently outperformed by their Confederate counterparts, commanded by Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart. Although they possessed superior equipment and had the advantage of a plentiful supply of men and federal horses, the Union cavalrymen had lacked the confidence, experience, and leadership to challenge Stuart. Salmon, pp. 165-67.

He ordered (on May 22) that his supply depots at Belle Plain, Aquia Creek (Crow's Nest Natural Area Preserve), and Fredericksburg (Fredericksburg, Virginia) be moved to a new base at Port Royal, Virginia, on the Rappahannock River. (Six days later the supply base was moved again, from Port Royal to White House (White House (plantation)) on the Pamunkey.) If Grant had decided to move directly south, he would have been forced to cross three rivers, the Little River, the New Found, and the South Anna, minor obstacles that Lee would have to navigate instead. Eicher, pp. 671, 679, 683; Rhea, ''Cold Harbor'', p. 22; Welcher, pp. 981, 986; Furgurson, p. 43. During this period, Confederate General James Longstreet unsuccessfully besieged the town (Siege of Suffolk) with 20,000 men between April 11 and May 4, 1863. He was ordered to disengage by General Robert E. Lee to join the Army of Northern Virginia at Fredericksburg (Fredericksburg, Virginia). Two months later on July 3, the Union forces abandoned the town for strategic reasons, as decided by General John Adams Dix.
