The Battle of Shiloh: Personal Recollections from Generals to Privates | [William T. Sherman, P G. T. Beauregard, Ulysses S. Grant, William Preston Johnston, Lew Wallace, Warren Onley, Thomas Jordan, Benjamin Mayberry Prentiss, Wilber F. Crummer]

The Battle of Shiloh: Personal Recollections from Generals to Privates

At daybreak on April 6, 1862, Confederate forces launched a bold suprise attack on the Union army, encamped in southwestern Tennesse. The battle of Shiloh, also known as the battle of Pittsburg Landing, would prove to be the bloodiest battle up until that point in United Staes history. The two day battle would cost a staggering 23,000 casualties. Both sides were stunned at the appalling loss of life. At the time, neither realized that three more years of such bloodshed were still to come.
