Naval Events:

Having dispatched a large number of troops to White House, Virginia, General Grant requested the Navy to send additional gunboats into the York and Pamunkey Rivers "to keep open free navigation between White House and the mouth of York River." Commodore Radford replied at once: "Will send vessels required immediately." U.S.S. Shawmut and Commodore Morris were detailed for this duty which, like control of the waters of the James, assured the Army of rapid communications an logistic support.

U.S.S. Wyandank, commanded by Acting Lieutenant Sylvanus Nickerson, seized schooner Champanero off Inigoes Creek in Chesapeake Bay. The Federal Customs Office at Port of St. Mary's had cleared the schooner and endorsed the accuracy of its manifest. Nickerson alertly examined the cargo and found more than one half of it not manifested, including a 'large quantity of powder. He also discovered that the customs official who had signed the clearance had $4,000 worth of liquor and other readily salable merchandise on board.
