Shiloh

The bloody battle of Shiloh was fought on April 6 and 7, 1862. The Confederates were commanded by Albert Sydney Johnston and the Union by Ulysses S. Grant. After retreating from Nashville, Johnson realized that the Federals would before long bring overpowering numbers against him. He concluded that his only hope was to strike Grant before he could be reinforced by Buell's army. Grant was caught off guard by the attack and in the first day's fight his army was almost pushed into the Tennessee River. It rallied just in time, Johnston was killed in action, and at dark Buell's Troops arrived. On the second day, the Federals reversed the tide and by mid- afternoon the badly battered Confederate army withdrew toward Corinth. The Federals lost 13,000 men and the Confederates 10,000.
