  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Joe Wheeler.  Wheeler overestimated the importance of the sight of moving supply wagons as he raided the Union rear on January 1.  With the benefit of hindsight, it now appears that the wagons were serving as drop-off points for Union foragers.  Wheeler believed that Rosecrans had sent his wagons back towards Nashville as the first move of a fighting withdrawal from the Stones River battlefield.
