150 Years Ago: Saturday, July 13, 1861

In Corrick’s Ford, Virginia, the 23rd Virginia is defeated by General Thomas A. Morris’s Indiana Brigade. It is here that Confederate General Robert S. Garnett is killed, and becomes the first general lost in the war. This is a loss for the Confederacy, as it takes the Union-supporting western Virginia states out of their control.

In Missouri, Brigadier General Nathaniel Lyon issues an order to halt the publication of the St. Louis State Journal due to its pro-Confederacy stance.
