The Confederate Congress authorized the borrowing of $15 million through French finan- cier Emile Erlanger. Friday, Jan. 30, 1863 Major General Ulysses S. Grant assumed immediate command of the entire expedition against Vicksburg, Mississippi and pro- ceeded with various plans to iso- late the city. Federal gunboat Isaac Smith, reconnoitering in the Stono River near Charleston, was fired upon By Confederate batteries, went aground and was captured. Skirmishing occurred at Deserted House, also known as Kelly's Store, near Suffolk, Va., and at Turner's Mills, Va. Saturday, Jan. 31, 1863 Confederate gunboats Chicora and Palmetto State moved out of Charleston Harbor, obscured in the haze, and raided the Fed- eral blockaders. Mercedita was so severely damaged by ramming and shellfire that she surrendered, but later was able to get under way and escape. Keystone State was set afire, her boilers struck with 10 or more shells. Other vessels were less seriously damaged. As usual, scalding steam caused most of the casualties, with four killed and three wounded on Mercedita, and 20 killed and 20 wounded on Key- stone State. The Confederate iron- clads withdrew unhurt. The Block- ade was not really broken, despite the temporary interruption. south of Savannah, Ga., and were again unsuccessful.

Tuesday, Feb. 3, 1863 Queen of the West, under Col- onel Charles R. Ellet, took three Confederate vessels below Vicks- burg, Miss.

A Confederate attack by Briga- dier General Nathan Bedford For- rest on Fort Donelson, Tenn., was repulsed by the Federal garrison and gunboats. It was an attempt to relieve pressure that the Fed- erals were exerting on Vicksburg, Miss., but the attack ended in fail- ure because of the lack of experi- enced troops under Forrest's com- mand.
