      Description: Confederate Gen. Braxton Bragg?s autumn 1862 invasion ofKentucky had reached the outskirts of Louisville and Cincinnati, buthe was forced to retreat and regroup. On October 7, the Federal armyof Maj. Gen. Don Carlos Buell, numbering nearly 55,000, converged onthe small crossroads town of Perryville, Kentucky, in three columns.Union forces first skirmished with Rebel cavalry on the SpringfieldPike before the fighting became more general, on Peters Hill, as thegrayclad infantry arrived. The next day, at dawn, fighting began againaround Peters Hill as a Union division advanced up the pike, haltingjust before the Confederate line. The fighting then stopped for atime. After noon, a Confederate division struck the Union left flankand forced it to fall back. When more Confederate divisions joined thefray, the Union line made a stubborn stand, counterattacked, butfinally fell back with some troops routed. Buell did not know of thehappenings on the field, or he would have sent forward some reserves.Even so, the Union troops on the left flank, reinforced by twobrigades, stabilized their line, and the Rebel attack sputtered to ahalt. Later, a Rebel brigade assaulted the Union division on theSpringfield Pike but was repulsed and fell back into Perryville. TheYankees pursued, and skirmishing occurred in the streets in theevening before dark. Union reinforcements were threatening the Rebelleft flank by now. Bragg, short of men and supplies, withdrew duringthe night, and, after pausing at Harrodsburg, continued theConfederate retrograde by way of Cumberland Gap into East Tennessee.The Confederate offensive was over, and the Union controlled Kentucky.
      Result(s): Union strategic victory
