Shiloh Discussion Group

Hello

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to drop a line and say Hi. I've been to Shiloh a few times over the years and have always been fascinated by the battlefield. I found this group by watching Tim Smith's tours on YouTube.  I'm from Vicksburg, Mississippi, and have "ancestral connections" to the battle via family members in 18th Alabama Infantry, Jackson's Brigade and 10th Mississippi Infantry, Chalmers' Brigade.

I also have a particular interest in the 8th Missouri Infantry of Smith's Bde of Lew Wallace's Div and would welcome any info y'all can pass on.

Thanks,

 

Mike

Greetings Mike

 

The 8th Missouri...  Is this the regiment that had eleven Medal of Honor winners in a single day at Vicksburg?

By making use of the 'Search Box" at top of page [select 'Forums,' first] and inserting Missouri [Enter], you will come up with several hits, a few of which are for 8th Missouri... just have to weed through them. One such hit:  http://shilohdiscussiongroup.com/index.php?/topic/733-8th-missouri-zouaves-at-shiloh/?hl=missouri

 

Other sites of use:   http://cdm.sos.mo.gov/cdm/ref/collection/mack/id/8727   (go to 'Home,' then select 'Civil War')

Enjoy your search (and Merry Christmas!)
