Fought between April 6th and 7th, 1862, The Battle of Shiloh in southwestern Tennessee was the bloodiest engagement of the Civil War up until its conclusion. In his memoirs, Grant intimated that "the battle of Shiloh, or Pittsburg landing, has been perhaps less understood, or to state the case more accurately, more persistently misunderstood, than any other engagement between National and Confederate troops during the entire rebellion. Correct reports of the battle have been published, notably by Sherman, Badeau and, in a speech before a meeting of veterans, by General Prentiss; but all of these appeared long subsequent to the close of the rebellion and after public opinion had been most erroneously formed."
