The Battle of Vienna, Virginia was a minor engagement between Union and Confederate forces on June 17, 1861, during the early days of the American Civil War. The Union was trying to protect the areas of Virginia opposite Washington, D.C., and established a camp at Vienna, at the end of a 15-mile railroad to Alexandria. As Union Brig. Gen. Robert C. Schenck was transporting the 1st Ohio Infantry to Vienna by train, they were overheard by Confederate scouts led by Colonel Maxcy Gregg, who set up an ambush. They hit the train with two cannon shots, inflicting casualties of eight killed and four wounded, before the Union men escaped into the woods. The engineer had fled with the locomotive, so the Union force had to retreat on foot. The Confederates briefly attempted a pursuit in the dark, but

  • La battaglia di Vienna (Virginia) è stata un episodio della prima fase guerra di secessione americana. Qualche mese dopo l'inizio della guerra civile, nel tentativo di espandere e proteggere il controllo nordista nella parte settentrionale della Virginia, il comando dell'esercito dell'Unione decise di occupare la città di Vienna (Virginia). Il 17 giugno 1861 una forza confederata guidata dal colonnello Gregg lasciò Fairfax e raggiunse Vienna. Ne nacque uno scontro a seguito del quale i nordisti furono costretti a ritirarsi. (it)

The engineer had fled with the locomotive, so the Union force had to retreat on foot. The Confederates briefly attempted a pursuit in the dark, but it was called off. Compared with later operations, the battle involved only small numbers, with the Union fielding 274 infantry, and the Confederates about 750 of infantry, cavalry and artillery. But it was widely reported by an eager press, and it worried the government, whose 90-day regiments were due to be disbanded. It was the first case of troop movement by train in the Civil War (reference??). (en)
