Battle of Stone's River – Day 2

After their hard fight of the previous day, both the Union and Confederate armies around Murfreesboro remained stationary on New Years Day, neither wanting to attack the other. Rosecrans had been driven back by Bragg, but now he was just more concentrated around his supply line. Some Union forces did recross the river to reoccupy the heights they had abandoned the previous day, and there were several small Confederate probes along the line, but in general, both armies did little more than rest and tend to their wounded.
