Both North and South were reassessing their conditions and realigning their forces following the major events of July. Much of the northern resentment against the war was tempered by the recent Federal victories. Southerners were lamenting their defeats and preparing to make even harder sacrifices for their cause.
Federal attention turned to Tennessee as William S. Rosecrans threatened Braxton Bragg’s Confederates at Chattanooga. Federal naval forces continued their bombardment of Charleston, the major armies in Virginia continued licking their wounds, and a vicious raid occurred in Kansas.
