  1. Just for the exercise, and sparked by a recent exchange with Darryl, I thought it might be of benefit to present a list of Don Carlos Buell's noteworthy experiences during the War Between the States. You may find some of the revelations surprising... May 20, 1861 Assigned to Department of the Pacific based at San Francisco, as Asst Adj General on the staff of General E.V. Sumner (the man who replaced Albert Sidney Johnston as Commander of that Department) September 14 Assigned to the Defenses of Washington, D.C. (and promoted to Brigadier General) November 15 Took over
  2. Cleveland Morning Leader of 5 APR 1862 Page 2 Col.3 (from 41st OVI). [Just a reminder: the 41st Ohio Infantry was part of Hazen's Brigade, of Nelson's Fourth Division. Hazen's Brigade crossed the Tennessee River during the night of 6/7 April and took part in Day Two at Battle of Shiloh.] https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=coo.31924077730160;view=1up;seq=365 OR 10 page 347 Report No. 111.
  3. For those who enjoy "alternative views of history" the attached link leads to a 9-volume examination of Campaigns of the Civil War. Originally devised in 1880 (and published as a 13-volume set) this HathiTrust version is dated 1963 with a view to "reduce the unwieldy number of volumes for a modern-day reader not so accepting of multiple-volume histories as was the reader of two generations ago." http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39076006502236;view=1up;seq=37 Of particular interest is the chapter "Concentration at Nashville" (to be found in the above link to Volume 4 pages 21 -
  4. On September 13th 1861, Corporal Jacob Harrison Allspaugh began this diary (and managed to record the drunken party of the night before.) On this day, the 31st Ohio Infantry moved south, out of Ohio and into Kentucky, where it set up tents at Camp Dick Robinson. And almost immediately, misfortune strikes Corporal Allspaugh: while showing a friend a revolver, he shot himself in the hand. For the next several weeks, the diary entries revolve around attempts to "extract the bullet," until finally Jacob Allspaugh was sent away for specialist care, and the bullet removed (in November.) Recovering q
  5. We're all aware of the telegram sent by Colonel Ben Helm to General Albert Sidney Johnston afternoon of Sunday, April 6th (which wound up in possession of Colonel Thomas Jordan, who delivered it to General Beauregard after Johnston's death.) That telegram -- indicating Buell's Army of the Ohio was marching south, away from Savannah -- may have led to Beauregard putting an end to Confederate military operations on Day One of Shiloh. The attached link refers to a telegram sent from Decatur Alabama same day, detailing the order of march of Army of the Ohio, and "30 or 40,000 troops having pa
  6. Depending on the reference, General Buell is reported to have arrived at Pittsburg Landing by steamer from Savannah early afternoon of April 6th and met General Grant: a) at the house near the river, or b] aboard Grant's dispatch boat (floating HQ) the Tigress. Upon review of primary sources, the only man who infers Buell met Grant at the house is John Rawlins, Grant's AAG [OR 10 page 185]. Every other primary source (including Grant, himself) indicates the initial meeting took place aboard the Tigress [Memoirs vol.1 page 283.] General Buell goes into more detail, and reports "that he arriv
