Work on Dutch Gap Canal Progressing

A Union expedition reconnoitered Confederate  naval forces above Dutch Gap on the James River in Virginia.  Work was progressing ahead quickly on the Dutch Gap Canal, which would allow Union gunboats to bypass obstructions and defenses at Trent's Reach.

This expedition provided valuable information regarding the positions of enemy ships and fortifications.
