November 27th, 1863 - The Battle of Mine Run

Conflict: American Civil War

Combatants: Confederates vs. Federals

Location: Virginia (USA)

Outcome: Inconclusive

After failing to turn the Federal left at Bristoe Station in October, Confederate General Robert E. Lee withdrew his troops to the Rappahannock. General George Meade pursued and, for nearly five days, tried unsuccessfully to attack the Confederate troops on the west bank of the Mine Run. The Federals lost approximately 1650 soldiers; the Confederates lost about 740.
