Publisher's Summary

Did you know that the Battle of Shiloh was the bloodiest battle of the US Civil War up to that time?

The Battle of Shiloh was fought along the Tennessee River near the border with Mississippi when the Confederates attempted to prevent the Union forces, who were led by future US president Ulysses S. Grant, from seizing the vital railroad junction at Corinth, Mississippi. 

When the battle began, the forces of the North and the South were equally matched on the battlefield, though the rebels knew they had to move fast in order to prevent the forces under Grant and Union General Don Carlos Buell from uniting on the west side of the Tennessee River.

The battle began in the early light of April 6, 1862, when Union scouts were surprised and stunned by the sight of over 9,000 Confederate troops heading straight for them.

In Captivating History’s The Battle of Shiloh, you’ll discover:

  • That the battle took its name from a small church whose name, Shiloh, is Hebrew for “place of peace”
  • Maps that will guide you through the stages of the battle
  • A guide to the weapons of the Civil War and their deadly results
  • Portraits of the leading men of the North and South 
  • The hell of the “Hornet’s Nest”, “Sunken Road”, “Peach Orchard,” and “Bloody Pond”
  • How Union mistakes almost cost them the battle
  • How Confederate mistakes cost them a great victory
  • The bravery of the troops on both sides and the panic of many Union troops
  • The determination of General Grant to win the battle, despite horrific casualties
  • That Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston was the highest-ranked officer on either side to fall during the battle
