  1. I'm getting real tired of the Grant bashing on this site. This post is ridicules and the last straw for me. I will no longer read certain peoples post.
  2. I'm really tired of all this Grant bashing on this site. If you review all the commanders at the beginning of the Civil War, you will see they all made errors as they learned and grew into their positions. Some learned, others didn't. Get rid of your anti-Grant bias and you can watch him grow into the great general he was.
  3. My older brother was a pin setter in the 50's. He really hated it when someone jumped the gun and rolled the ball when he was in the pit, even with the guard down. Jim
  4. Larry DeBarry @ Shiloh Tours and Museum gives great tours and his museum is a must see. Larry's a pretty cool relic too! https://shilohtours.com/
  5. Sat, Nov. 3 forecast for those who believe that the weatherman is capable of predicting the weather more than an hour in the future: https://www.accuweather.com/en/us/crump-tn/38327/daily-weather-forecast/2085479?day=7
  6. My mistake. I meant the 16th WI, although a portion of the 18th WI ended up with the 16th after the initial attack.
  7. The 18th WI fought with this brigade Sunday afternoon after relieving the 44th Ind. that had exhausted their ammo supply. They stayed with Lauman the rest of the day and the next.
  8. When I first meet CD, he spent the better part of a day showing me sites related to the battle that are not on the Park. The man was generous with his time and willing to help anyone. A rare man indeed. I don't know if we realize just yet in how many ways he will be missed. RIP buddy.
  9. " water from the tennessee river" Jeez, the lest ya could do was give em water from Rhea Springs.
  10. " OK, I know that someone will claim that the 16th Wisconsin killed them all." Claim?
  11. OK, now I'm confused. Everything I've ever found on the 16th WI rifle at Shiloh stated they had 69 caliber Belgian rifles, which weren't very popular.
