  • Nice work! That's correct!
    Answer:

    The Battle of Perryville.  Buell's superior numbers had compelled the Confederate army to retreat after the savage Battle of Perryville, Kentucky in October, 1862.  Buell refused to press his advantage, however.  Joining a shrieking chorus, he asked for more men, more supplies, and insisted that an advance was impossible at the present time.  Lincoln had grown tired of these complaints.  He replaced Buell with William Rosecrans before the end of the year.
