As we know, artillery is what made Grant's Last Line of defence formidable: Webster's siege guns, Cavender's 10-pounders and 20-pounders, and dozens of other pieces extracted from the Hornet's Nest, Sunken Road, and Shiloh Church, of varying size and description... My question: Excluding the artillery provided by late-arriving Lew Wallace and Don Carlos Buell, how many artillery pieces were available for use by Grant's Army, beginning with Markgraf's 8th Ohio on the Union left and extending west and north, to Sherman's right, near the Snake River Bridge? Happy 2017 Ozzy Hint: "Fifty-three" is not the correct answer.
