November 23-25, 1863- The Battle for Chattanooga. Union forces break the Confederate siege of the city in successive attacks. The most notable

Confederate Army south into Georgia where General Bragg reorganizes his forces before resigning from command on November 30.

November 26-December 1, 1863- The Mine Run Campaign. Meade's Army of the Potomac marches against Lee's Army of Northern Virginia
south of the Rapidan River, east of Orange Court House. Lee reacts and throws up a line of defenses along the banks of Mine Run Creek.
After several days of probing the defenses, Meade withdraws north of the Rapidan and goes into winter quarters.

November 27 to December 3, 1863- Siege of Knoxville, Tennessee. Confederate troops under General James Longstreet lay siege to the city
of Knoxville held by Union forces under General Ambrose Burnside. Longstreet finally attacks on November 30 but is repulsed with heavy losses.
The arrival of Union reinforcements forces him to withdraw to Greeneville, Tennessee, where his corps will spend the winter.
