This Day in the Civil War

Here’s what was happening around this date during the Civil War.

On the tenth of April, Lincoln visited the Army of the Potomac at its winter quarters in Falmouth, Virginia in order to review the troops. The soldiers expressed a full confidence in Hooker – but this view was not completely shared by the president. Lincoln tamped down Hooker’s rhetoric regarding the capture of Richmond. He reminded the general that defeating Lee’s Army of Virginia was their goal. Richmond was merely the bait to lure Lee into battle.

On April 13th, General Burnside issued General Order Number 38, threatening the death penalty for anyone found guilty of treason.
