Stumbled upon this site on YouTube by accident, and believe it to contain informative, well-researched general knowledge facts suitable for starting a discussion, or generating interest in a research project:   http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZrhqv_T1O1vGjphtbnTVXpNpiFKUpVy8  Civil War in4 from Civil War Trust ( website civilwar.org). For our purposes here at SDG, the most interesting videos:


In addition, Civil War Trust has expanded into videos of the American Revolution  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmkK9Gx7fqw

We're less than ten years from the 250th Anniversary of that momentous event, so a great opportunity presents to become re-familiar with aspects of that earlier conflict... four minutes at a time.

The American Battlefield Trust has begun 2019 with a bang, publishing "Shiloh in 4 Minutes" on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipNrAvDIO8U  Post of 16 JAN 2019:  Shiloh in 4

Featuring the narration and analysis of Dr. Timothy B. Smith, this fact-packed episode introduces Fraley Field; discusses the timing and drivers of Confederate movement north; General Grant trading space for time on Day One (with the arrival of Federal reinforcements making certain the outcome on Day Two.)

It would be a challenge for anyone to do a better job of summarizing Battle of Shiloh.

Bravo Zulu!
