On May 12, 1863, two divisions of the XVII Corps marched from the Roach Farm on the Utica Road and defeated Gregg's Confederate brigade at Raymond. The next day, McPherson's men moved to Clinton and cut the railroad. Meanwhile, two divisions of the XV Corps moved from Dillon's Farm to Mississippi Springs, five miles east of Raymond. To protect the army's rear as it pivoted toward Jackson, the XIII Corps feigned an attack on Confederate forces at Mt. Moriah, and Grant captured Jackson on May 14.
