The Shiloh Campaign free pdf Some 100,000 soldiers fought in the April 1862 battle of Shiloh, and nearly 20,000 men were killed or wounded- more Americans died on that Tennessee battlefield than had died in all the nation's previous wars combined. In the first book in his new series, Steven E. Woodworth has brought together a group of superb historians to reassess this significant battle" "and" "provide in-depth analyses of key aspects of the campaign and its aftermath. The eight talented contributors dissect the campaign's fundamental events, many of which have not received adequate attention before now. John R. Lundberg examines the role of Albert Sidney Johnston, the prized Confederate commander who recovered impressively after a less-than-stellar performance at forts Henry and Donelson only to die at Shiloh- Alexander Mendoza analyzes the crucial, and perhaps decisive, struggle to defend the Union's left- Timothy B. Smith investigates the persistent legend that the Hornet's Nest was the spot of the hottest fighting at Shiloh- Steven E. Woodworth follows Lew Wallace's controversial march to the battlefield and shows why Ulysses S. Grant never forgave him- Gary D. Joiner provides the deepest analysis available of action by the Union gunboats- Grady McWhiney" "describes P. G. T. Beauregard's decision to stop the first day's attack and takes issue with his claim of victory- and Charles D. Grear shows the battle's impact on Confederate soldiers, many of whom did not consider the battle a defeat for their side. In the final chapter, Brooks D. Simpson analyzes how command relationships--specifically the interactions among Grant, Henry Halleck, William T. Sherman, and Abraham Lincoln--affected the campaign and debunks commonly held beliefs about Grant's reactions to Shiloh's aftermath. "The Shiloh Campaign" will enhance readers' understanding of a pivotal battle that helped unlock the western theater to Union conquest. It is sure to inspire further study of and debate about one of the American Civil War's momentous campaigns.
