The Battle of Shiloh also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing, was a major battle in the Western Theater of the American Civil War, fought April 6 – 7, 1862, in southwestern Tennessee. A Union army under Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant had moved via the Tennessee River deep into Tennessee and was encamped principally at Pittsburg Landing on the west bank of the river. Confederate forces under Generals Albert Sidney Johnston and P. G. T. Beauregard launched a surprise attack on Grant there. The Confederates achieved considerable success on the first day, but were ultimately defeated on the second day.

Battle of Shiloh in Southern VictoryEdit

The Battle of Shiloh was bloodiest battle of the War of Secession, resulting in the death of CS General Albert Sidney Johnston. In the aftermath of the war, General Johnston became a martyr for the CSA.  Although it'd made a hero out of US General Ulysses Grant, it did little to help him in his post-war career.
