Toland's Raid

It is safe to say that for most Americans, the idea of a war being fought in the streets would be a foreign concept.  Indeed, wars being fought within city streets within the past 100 years has occurred solely on foreign soil.  During the American Civil War however, this was not the case.  The street fighting was also not limited to the larger populated areas.  In fact, just such a battle occurred in Wytheville in 1863.
