President Lincoln went down the Potomac to Belle Plain for a conference with Burnside. "Neither Halleck nor the Sect. knew that he was going." President Davis wrote the governors of the Confederate states appealing for aid in enrolling conscripts and forwarding them to rendezvous, in restoring to the Army all absent without leave, and in securing more supplies for army use. He also called for use of slave labor on defense works.

There was a skirmish near Somerville, Tennessee; a Federal reconnaissance from Bolivar Heights to Charles Town, western Virginia; an affair in Jackson and La Fayette counties, Missouri; and in Tennessee these last days of the month there were operations about Springfield, a Union reconnaissance at La Vergne, and a Federal expedition from Edgefield to Clarksville. U.S.S. Kittatinny, commanded by Acting Master Lamson, captured schooner Diana, bound from Campeche to Matamoras.

President Lincoln spent the morning at Aquia Creek, Virginia conferring with Gen Burnside. The general favored a direct assault on Lee at Fredericksburg, while President Lincoln proposed building up a force south of the Rappahannock River and another on the Pamunkey for a three-pronged attack. Burnside turned down the President’s plan. There was a skirmish at Mill Creek, Tennessee; and another at Carthage, Missouri; while a Federal expedition that lasted until Dec 6 probed near Grenada, Mississippi. A Federal advance was beginning toward Cane Hill, Arkansas ( http://civilwararkansas.blogspot.com/20 ... aking.html ).

Federal forces won an engagement at Cane Hill or Boston Mountains, Arkansas when Northerners under James Blunt attacked Confederates under John S. Marmaduke and drove them back with considerable loss, giving the Federals a momentary edge in the Trans-Mississippi fighting ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Cane_Hill and http://www.nps.gov/history/hps/abpp/battles/ar004.htm and http://civilwararkansas.blogspot.com/20 ... -hill.html ). There were skirmishes for two days at Holly Springs, Mississippi where the Federals were beginning a build-up of supplies for their advance on Vicksburg. There was also a skirmish in Mississippi at the junction of the Coldwater and Tallahatchie Rivers; skirmishes on the Carthage Road, near Hartsville and Rome, Tennessee; near Hartwood Church, Virginia; and a three-day Federal reconnaissance from Chantilly, Virginia to Berryville.

Maj Gen John B. Magruder ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_B._Magruder ), CSA, assumed command of the District of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. There were skirmishes at Lumpkin’s Mill and Waterford, Mississippi; and at Stewart’s Ferry and Baird’s Mills, Tennessee near Stone’s River. U.S.S. Mount Vernon, commanded by Acting Lieutenant Trathen, captured blockade runner Levi Rowe off New Inlet, North Carolina, with cargo of rice.

In late November Captain H. A. Adams was ordered to special duty at Philadelphia as coordinator of coal supply. All coal used in the U.S. Navy at that time was anthracite and came from the eastern district of Pennsylvania, being forwarded to Philadelphia either by rail or barge down the Schuylkill River. There it was loaded into coal schooners and sent to the various blockading squadrons. Before Captain Adams was ordered to this duty, squadron commanders had considerable difficulty in keeping their ships supplied with coal and often had to borrow from the Army. To illustrate the amount of coal required by the squadrons, Rear Admiral Du Pont notified the Navy Department in mid-December that the consumption of coal in his South Atlantic Blockading Squadron alone was approximately 950 tons a week.

The following appointments were made to Major General: Hiram Gregory Berry, USA; Francis Preston Blair, Jr., USA; James Gillpatrick Blunt, USA; Daniel Butterfield, USA; Napoleon Jackson Tecumseh Dana, USA; William Henry French, USA; Winfield Scott Hancock, USA; Francis Jay Herron, USA; John Alexander Logan, USA; George Gordon Meade, USA; Robert Huston Milroy, USA; Richard James Oglesby, USA; John McCauley Palmer, USA; Benjamin Mayberry Prentiss, USA; John Fulton Reynolds, USA; Joseph Jones Reynolds, USA; John McAllister Schofield, USA; Daniel Edgar Sickles, USA; David Sloane Stanley, USA; Frederick Steele, USA; George Stoneman, USA; George Sykes, USA; and Cadwallader Colden Washburn, USA.

A quiet end to a month of lesser fighting, command changes, and preparations for things to come. There were skirmishes, however, at Chulahoma, Mississippi and on the Tallahatchie River; and a Federal expedition operated from Rolla to the Ozarks in Missouri until Dec 6. C.S.S. Alabama, commanded by Captain Semmes, captured and burned bark Parker Cook off the Leeward Islands. Confederate Major General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson's troops arrive at Fredericksburg, Virginia, from the Shenandoah Valley.

The third session of the Thirty-seventh Congress of the United States convened and received the State of the Union message from the President. President communicates Second Annual Message to Congress: Foreign relations are more satisfactory than might be expected. Treaty with Great Britain for suppression of slave trade is in operation with prospect of success. Negro colonies from U.S. may soon migrate to Liberia and Haiti. Commercial relations with leading nations are undisturbed. System of banking associations will circulate notes of uniform appearance and security. Treasury receipts amounted to $583 million, expenditures to $570 million. Public lands are no longer source of revenue. System for Indian affairs may need remodeling. Progress has been made on construction of Pacific railroad. Department of Agriculture has been organized. President recommends that Congress propose three amendments to Constitution: 1. Every State that abolishes slavery before January 1, 1900, shall receive compensation from the U.S. 2. All slaves who shall have enjoyed actual freedom by chances of war shall be forever free. 3. Congress may appropriate money, and otherwise provide for colonizing free colored persons with their own consent, at any place or places outside U.S. ( http://www.infoplease.com/t/hist/state- ... on/74.html )

Confederate Gen Joseph E. Johnston assumed over-all command in the West. Sporadic fighting continued on the major fronts. There was an engagement on the Rappahannock River near Port Royal, not far from Fredericksburg, Virginia; and skirmishing on the Franklin Pike and near Stewart’s Ferry on Stone’s River, Tennessee. In Mississippi the action was near Oxford and Water Valley. There were operations about Cane Hill and Reed’s Mountain, Arkansas ( http://civilwararkansas.blogspot.com/20 ... grove.html ), and in Cherokee Country, Indian Territory. Citizens attacked Indian prisoners at Mankato, Minnesota. At Prestonburg, Kentucky Confederates captured some supply boats with arms, ammunition, and uniforms. There also was a skirmish in Floyd County, Kentucky. Arnold Jones Elsey, CSA, was appointed to Major General.

U.S.S. Anacostia, Coeur de Lion, Currituck, and Jacob Bell, under Acting Master Shankland, engaged by Confederate batteries at Port Royal, Virginia. In the exchange of fire which lasted over an hour, Jacob Bell was damaged.

Rear Admiral Farragut stated: "My people are carrying on the war in various parts of the coast, & it takes all my energies to keep them supplied with provisions and coal. I have a great many irons in the fire and have to look sharp to keep some of them from burning . . . We have either taken or destroyed all the steamers that run from Havanna & Nassau to this coast, except the Cuba and Alice . . . I have all the coast except Mobile Bay, and am ready to take that the moment I can get troops."

In a confusing battle at Prairie Grove, about twelve miles southwest of Fayetteville, Arkansas on Illinois Creek, Confederates under Thomas C. Hindman attacked Federal forces under James Blunt and Francis J. Herron. Herron had been ordered to Blunt’s support. Hindman, advancing from Van Buren, Arkansas attempted to defeat the two Federal units separately, but they managed to join after a hard march by Herron’s men from Wilson’s Creek, Missouri. Confederates held their position but bitter winter weather forced them to withdraw during the night. Federals maintained control of northwest Arkansas. The figures are put at 175 Federals killed, 813 wounded, and 263 missing for a total of 1251 casualties out of an estimated 10,000 troops. For the Confederates 164 were killed, 817 wounded, and 336 missing for a total of 1317 casualties, also out of about 10,000 men. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Prairie_Grove and http://civilwararkansas.blogspot.com/20 ... ansas.html )

President Davis, worried about Vicksburg, wired Gen Pemberton at Grenada, Mississippi, “Are you in communication with Genl. J.E. Johnston? Hope you will be re-inforced in time.” The Confederate Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana was organized with Maj Genls Van Dorn and Price commanding the First and Second Corps. There was an affair at Padre Island, Texas. John Hunt Morgan, with about 1400 men, surprised and captured a Federal garrison at Hartsville, Tennessee. Col A.B. Moore lost 2096 men, about 1800 of whom were taken prisoner ( http://www.nps.gov/history/hps/abpp/battles/tn008.htm and http://civilwargazette.wordpress.com/ta ... tennessee/ ).

C.S.S. Alabama, commanded by Captain Semmes, captured California steamer Ariel off the coast of Cuba with 700 passengers on board, including 150 Marines and Commander Louis C. Sartori, USN.

President Davis, concerned over the several threats to the Confederacy, wrote Lee at Fredericksburg, “In Tennessee and Mississippi the disparity between our armies and those of the enemy is so great as to fill me with apprehension.” He announced his intention to go west immediately. As to Lee’s desire to concentrate forces to defend Richmond, Davis regretted he could do so little to help him as to manpower. There was a Federal reconnaissance from Suffolk to the Blackwater and skirmishes at and about Zuni, Virginia Dec 8-12. The Confederates began their withdrawal from Prairie Grove ( http://civilwararkansas.blogspot.com/20 ... -into.html ). U.S.S. Daylight, commanded by Acting Master Warren, seized sloop Coquette off New Topsail Inlet, North Carolina, with cargo of whiskey, potatoes, apples, and onions.
