  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    The Battle of Gettysburg.  Approximately 34% of the soldiers at Stones River were killed, wounded, or captured.  Gettysburg ranks second with approximately 32% casualties.  Note that these figures take into account the entirety of both armies throughout the entire battles--units involved in certain parts of both engagements suffered much higher percentages.  For example, the casualty rates for those involved in Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg and Breckinridge's charge at Stones River exceeded 50%.
