    Missing Artillery Units

    Thanks for the info. I had listed The Jefferson Artillery under another name in error and had skipped Hubbard's unit. Everything ok. I have compiled a listing of all artillery units engaged at Shiloh. Each includes Name, Commander, Ordinance, Campsite locations each position location, memorial location together with all citationseventually I will include casualities and material losses. I also want to reference any information from the various other written sources. The ultimate goal is to be able to track all the artillery units using all existing sources. I would of course acknowledge any and all help.
  3. In my research on the artillery at Shiloh came across the Jefferson Mississippi Artillery Battery and Hubard's (Jackson) Arkansas Battery. Couldn't find in the 1913 listing on the NPS Reed's book. Can anyone give me any information. Jim G
  4. In nearly all accounts of the battle there is the story that Col Jordan used as a model Napoleon's battle plan of Waterloo as a pattern for the alignemnt of the Confederate forces at Shiloh. Has anyone checked that out?Also what is the best account of the pre battle planning? Also Jordan seemed to take on a lot of authority during the battle exactly what was his function as an Adjustant?

    Basic Bibliography

    I was asking just to see what the reponse was, I have most of the recommended books. I have ordered the life of Albert S. Johnston. Seeing Ron plucked his un finished book I put a plug in for mine, "A Study of the Artillery Units at Shiloh" . That is a working title I think of something snapper when I send to a publisher. Jim G

    Basic Bibliography

    I was thinking about the various books on the battle. If you wanted to study the battle , what would be a basic bibliography to start with ? I am not asking to rate them just list the basic ones. I would also like to know which books would be good for a study of the artillery at Shiloh?

    Happy Birthday Jim!

    I forgot to mention I hit the big 65. I am an official senior citizen. Jim
  10. I agree that both Buell and Wallace were timid in their attacks. I will have to go back and check on it in my books. I have a copy of "All For the Regiment" and haven't read it yet maybe it covers Buell's actions. Jim

    General Benjamin Prentiss

    I remember both with the Illustrated and without it. I also remember when it was the ONLY civil war magazine there was around. I know I am aging myself but I am old. It is hearting to see Shiloh featured in a magazine. I do get tired of all the eastern theater stuff and the later war campaigns in the west. Personal opinion on my part! Jim G

    General Benjamin Prentiss

    I just wanted to tell everyone about the article not start a discussion on Prentiss. I did that awhile ago in the battle section. He is interesting but I think most of us agree that he wasn't the saviour of the Union Army that some thought. Jim G
