    Grant's Shiloh Report

    On #15--"Nothing but hospitals and dead bodies--as long as Sherman pursued"....there was the "pursuit order" so this part of the report "overlooks" the fighting at fallen timbers.on the 8th.

    do you think think that Prentiss' action toward Peabody was in a way trying to cover up he was not "doing his job " as not being on the look out for the confederate army..and Peabody was listening to all info tat was coming into camp? Also,wonder if Prentiss ever read Shea's book.....

    PVT Baker 25th Missouri

    and yall remember the little girl's diary..i cant think of her name..but she writes of small ravine filled with Confederate dead... i do know from tellings of older people way back that are gone now of seeing skeletal remains in some of these places...so some were not even buried just piled up..and you all know that it would be very easy for a wounded soldier to walk a piece before collapsing and dying and body not being found but hogs .later.
