1st Sgt. William Steele McClanahan, Company F, 17th Illinois Infantry. The following was written about McClanahan at Shiloh: "While driving the enemy from the battlefield of Shiloh on the second day, our regiment had advanced so far beyond the rest of our lines that we were ordered to halt, and Mac, either failing to hear the order, or in his enthusiasm determined to press the enemy to the wall, had charged out two or three rods ahead of the line, single-handed and alone, till I had to send a comrade to bring him back."
