|Army of the Cumberland||Army of Tennessee|
|Casualties and losses|
The Union Plan was to attack consecutively, and start digging into the South. George Meade, Joseph Chamberlain and John Sedgewick were the 3 main Union commanders throughout the campaign. After 2 failures at the first 2 battles, the Union finally got a little sunshine when the Confederate's lost more men than the Union.
The Confederate's, after the first attack, prepared to play "defensive" in this campaign. However, it did not sit well with Stonewall Jackson, who, after defeating them at the Battle of Richmond, called for an attack which ended up inconclusive.
In the Battle of Jillvy, James Longstreet was wounded on the battlefield so James L. Worley had to take his place. Surgeons told Stonewall that Longstreet would be able to return to duty in 3 days (returned February 12).
The outcome of the campaign was a Confederate victory despite more casualties. If they had lost the Battle of Jillvy, then it was highly likely that the Union would have broken through lines.
