  • At Washington, President Lincoln receives the first of a series of letters from newspaper editor (and liberal Republican) Horace Greeley advocating a negotiated peace. 
  • Later today, Lincoln asks the Kentucky delegation in Congress if they will consent to "my friend Jesse Bayles" raising "a Kentucky Regiment" in blatant violation of Kentucky’s neutrality./1861
