Eyewitness Accounts of the Battle of Shiloh

Recommended Posts


With the battle anniversary quickly approaching, I thought it would be interesting to ask our members to contribute quotes, letters, speaches and newpaper accounts of the battle in a special "Eyewitness Accounts of the Battle of Shiloh" section.  The accounts could be by soldiers or civilians who were impacted by the events.  What do you think?  I have some excerpts from the Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant that I could submit to get the ball rolling.  Just make sure everyone identifies the source of the information so no copyrighted materials will be violated.
