May 12, 1863

United States Navy gunboats ferried a force of United States cavalrymen from near here to the eastern shore in the predawn hours of May 12. After formation was achieved the force rode to Linden arriving at dawn. The cavalry surrounded the town, surprising the Confederate force there. Forty prisoners, fifty horses and two wagons were captured and the courthouse was burned. Amphibious attacks were a new tactic in the Civil War.
