Abraham Lincoln and General-in-Chief Henry Halleck sought to take advantage of their material superiority over the South, launching a three-pronged coordinated offensive that would overwhelm the Confederacy's ability to shift reinforcements along its interior lines.
The offensive called for General Ambrose Burnside to advance in Virginia, General Ulysses Grant to advance in Mississippi, and General William Rosecrans to advance in Tennessee; the strategic central position.
The Battle of Murfreesboro is significant in that it secured Union control of Middle Tennessee for the remainder of the war.
