Tom,

In your opinion, what was the most prevalent weapon at Shiloh, well, most prevalent in the Southern Army and the likewise for the Federal Army.

Stan-- You would have to go by Division I think--- and,  as to type of firearm seen most often-- It is hard for me to categorize by Model or year. To me it is just Rifles vs. Smoothbores. The one Rifle I note-- the Hall Rifle-- it had a distance of only 180 yards out-- firing a round ball-- same if someone with a Mississippi or a Civilian Rifle shooting a round ball-- they were good only to 180 yards-- now you put a minie in a Mississippi-- they are good for 300 to 400 yards out-- The Enfield in their manual says they are good out to 600 yards-- if you can see that far! I am working on  something new for Shiloh-- will let you know how it works out. AND! People want me to do a monograph or book on Shiloh----- Are you game? I could use your help on photos etc.-- Uniforms, Weapons and Flags and Other Stuff--- that would be the title!

Yep, I would be!  Finishing up my Master's Degree, thesis on CS flags.  Long story short, have some Shiloh accounts and neat flag images to use, especially, go figure, Alabama flags.
