|I can't imagine night fighting to be an advantage for either side. Another battle that comes to mind is Wauhatchie. Longstreet sent a few brigades to attempt to close the 'cracker line' after the Confederates on Lookout Mountain discovered what had happened. Fighting went on for several hours at night, but the attacks were ineffective because they could not be coordinated. I'm guessing that the difficulty in coordinating troop units in the dark is why so few events took place.
