Braxton Bragg concentrated his army in Murfreesboro after retreating (Oct., 1862) from Kentucky. As Union Gen. William Rosecrans moved toward Chattanooga, Bragg confronted him just N of Murfreesboro. Bragg attacked first and on Dec. 31 nearly routed the Union forces. Rosecrans repulsed an ensuing attack, and on Jan. 3, the Union army occupied Murfreesboro; Bragg retreated to Tullahoma.
