  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    An attack on the Confederate right flank.  Rosecrans intended to attack the Confederate positions on the banks of Stones River and drive through the Confederate rear.  He circulated the necessary orders for an assault after breakfast.  Braxton Bragg's advance began at dawn, thus pre-empting Rosecrans's plan.  Unfortunately for the Southern effort, the officers on the right flank mistakenly reported that Rosecrans was in fact attacking in their sector and refused to move to support the main battle until late in the day.
