  1. HELLO FROM WISCONSIN-- SHILOH STUDY

    Tom, "Yeah! The 14th, 16th, and 18th Wisconsin-- they won the Battle of Shiloh single-handed you know!!" Not only did the 16th win the battle, they won the war! Jim
  2. HELLO FROM WISCONSIN-- SHILOH STUDY

    Welcome Tom. It's always good to have as many cheeseheads on here as possible. Jim
  3. Epic Hike 2018 Suggestions

    " You are joking...we would all be forever banned " Actually, Doc, all Y'all would most likely be in jail! I believe there are Federal laws about the theft of property.
  4. Wisconsin photos vis-à-vis Shiloh

    Yup. I thought you knew about it so I never mentioned it. Spent many a hour on the fourth floor archive. When Mona visited WI, I was going to take her there, but they had changed the hours and were closed on the Monday when we got there. Fortunately, I'd made my acquaintance with the powers that be and got Mona a private tour in the closed museum. The display in the picture is of the cornfield at Antietam.

  8. Shiloh from the air

    Ozzy, it is 6:30 AM. The temp is 43 deg. The humidity is 66% already!
  9. Shiloh from the air

    Ozzy, " (clear air, less than 30% humidity.)" This part of the world NEVER has less than 30% humidity!
  10. Spoils of War

    Stan, another reason the Rebs probably didn't collect weapons on the night of the 6th was that they believed they had pretty much won the battle and only needed to clean up in the morning. If they thought they controlled the battlefield, they might have felt they had plenty of time to pick up any arms laying around.
  11. Full Hospitals

    " But, there are too many cases of "sick men on death's door" recovering fully when removed to their pre-war homes (i.e., loving care) to ignore. " After the Battle of Shiloh, my Grandfather came down with the Tenn. Trots (It's what he called it in his pension papers!), which was dysentery. That got him put in the Division hospital, where he came down with malaria (I showed all the paperwork to my Doc and he said he probably had the malaria first, which made him susceptible to dysentery). They put him on a boat to St. Louis, where he came down with typhoid fever. In the St. Louis hospital, they figured he was a dead man and stuck him in the corner. WI was taking their terminal men home to treat and he headed back to mom. She healed him up and he was back in time for the Battle of Corinth in Oct. They were a wee bit tougher back then! Jim
  12. Court-Martial records

    It's working fine now (mumble mumble computers!). Jim
