1863 – (Civil War) Battle of Mine Run Begins in Virginia

The seven-day series of engagements known as the Battle of Mine Run in northern Virginia pitted 81,000 Union troops against 48,000 Confederates. The 2nd, 5th, 6th and 7th Wisconsin Infantry regiments and the 1st U.S. Sharpshooters G Company were involved. Although the two sides skirmished repeatedly, neither could claim victory. This was the last battle in the Eastern Theater before winter set in.
