Battle of Shiloh, Pittsburgh Landing!

Date: April 6, 1862

Location: Tennessee

Personnel: General William Tecumsen Sherman, General Johnson, General Pierre Beauregard

Leader: Ulysses S. Grant

Technology: Boats, guns, ferries

Outcome: Everyone had thought the battle would end by dawn, but there was a thunder-storm that interrupted their battle. Grant was attacked by boats up the river, so he sent troops to the Southerners to attack, and the South retreated.

Impact: 11000 of the 41000 soldiers were lost on the Confederate side. 13000 soldiers lost on the Union side, which was one-fourth of the men they had.
