1862 – (Civil War) Engagement at Lovejoy Station, Georgia

Union troops faced off against retreating Confederates at Lovejoy Station, Georgia, after taking the city of Atlanta. The 12th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 24th, 25th and 32nd Wisconsin Infantry regiments, along with the 10th Wisconsin Light Artillery, took part in this action. The action began on the previous day, and although both sides dug in and prepared for battle, neither ever received orders to take the offensive. Four days were spent in a standoff that produced no results.
