15th Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry (aka Anderson Cavalry; aka 160th Volunteers)
The mutiny of this regiment began on 26 December 1862. Orders had arrived to move to the front in support of the Union advance that would eventually culminate in the Battle of Stones River - but 400 stacked arms and refused to move. Major General William S. Rosecrans, commanding the Army of the Cumberland, threatened the mutineers to come to heel. To no avail. After the battle’s end, he imprisoned them in Nashville to await courtmartial. https://oaktrust.library.tamu.edu/bitstream/handle/1969.1/155078/ROMANSKY-DISSERTATION-2015.pdf?sequence=1 Also see: wiki/15th_Pennsylvania_Cavalry_Regiment

Note: the (Ky) designation in the newspaper article is incorrect; Anderson Cavalry was a PA regiment. [Chicago Daily Tribune., January 08, 1863, page 1.]
