I am working on a biography of Dr. Patrick Gregg of Rock Island, Illinois. He was Captain of K Company of the 58th Illinois and was captured with Prentiss. His post POW career was with the 23rd Illinois as its Surgeon. The attached file is an attempt to give context to Gregg's Shiloh's personal experience there. Critique and corrections are welcome.

There have already been discussions IRT the curious HQ memorials at Shiloh NMP, particularly monuments of the First Division (MGen McClernand): http://www.shilohbattlefield.org/closeup.asp?ClosePhoto=TN003M003C.jpg First Brigade Headquarters Monument acknowledges that Colonel Hare was in command in Brigadier General Richard Oglesby's absence (which explains presence of both names at bottom of monument); http://www.shilohbattlefield.org/closeup.asp?ClosePhoto=TN003M004C.jpg Third Brigade Headquarters Monument only has Colonel L.F. Ross's name at the bottom of the monument (and does not accurately record that Command of the brigade, morning of April 6th 1862, proceeded from the absent Ross, to the sick Colonel Rearden... and finally settled on Colonel Julius Raith of the 43rd Illinois). [Image from www.tracesofwar.com] Given the above Headquarters Monument representing the Second Division at Shiloh (and the link to the associated plaque explaining the lead-up to April 6th): http://www.shilohbattlefield.org/closeup.asp?ClosePhoto=TN003T00EC.jpg Historic Plaque #E at Shiloh NMP What four names (last names of four different men) should be included at the base of this Headquarters Monument? Ozzy Hint: Do not include Colonel James Tuttle in your list.
