December 5, 1862. If you were on the Square in Oxford, Mississippi, this is what you would have seen: the men of an Illinois regiment of the Union army camped around the courthouse. In fact, there would be about 40,000 troops now in the Oxford area under the command of Union General Ulysses S. Grant. The raging “Battle of Coffeeville” took place on this date south of Oxford.
