Stone's River National Battlefield, TN (7-23-14) : The Battle of Stone's River (also known as the Battle of Murphreesboro) was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War and yet, it remains relatively unknown to all but serious Civil War buffs.  I have to admit, though I had heard about the battle, I knew little of its cause or how it was carried out or the magnitude of the casualties left in its wake.  Stone's River ranks as the 7th bloodiest battle of the Civil War...slightly less so than Shiloh but more so than Antietam.  However, if you consider the number of total casualties of 24,615 against the total number of men engaged (~76,000) you get a staggering casualty rate of 32%, the highest of any battle during the Civil War!

The stage was set for the battle at Stone's River many months prior.  Following his abortive campaign into Kentucky, Confederate General Braxton Bragg had fallen back south to middle Tennessee near the town of Murphreesboro.  There, in late November 1862, Bragg and his Army of the Tennessee dug in and awaited the next move from the Federals.  On the Union side, Major General Don Carlos Buell had done little to capitalize on his success in freeing Kentucky of a Confederate threat, letting the Rebel army slip away unmolested.  Licoln could not stand for this and quickly replaced Buell with Major General William S. Rosecrans.  Rosecrans first move with his soon-to-be-named Army of the Cumberland was south to Nashville, Tennessee where he set about reorganizing and refitting it.  Rosecrans dallied to long however and by the middle of December Washington was making it very clear to him that they expected a move against the Confederates immediately...to wait further would mean his replacement.  Rosecrans got the hint.  On December 26, 1862 he set out with his army of 41,000 men to meet the waiting Confederates.  The three day march was miserable for the soldiers in blue.  Rain, sleet, and cold (which would be present  throughout the campaign), along with frequent raids by Confederate cavalry were ever-present.  By December 30 the two armies faced each other across the fields outside Murphreesboro.  Settling down for a cold night, the soldiers on each side had no illusions about what would occur come the first light of dawn...
