1863 – (Civil War) Second day of Battle of Stones River, Tennessee

The Battle of Stones River entered its second day near Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The 1st, 10th, 15th, 21st and 24th Wisconsin Infantry regiments and 3rd, 5th, 8th, and 10th Wisconsin Light Artillery batteries took part. About 41,000 Union soldiers faced off against 38,000 Confederates in driving rain, sleet, and fog. The bravery of the 10th led one general to comment that they "would have suffered extermination rather than have yielded their ground without orders."
