The Battle of Shiloh, also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing, was a major
battle in the Western Theater of the Civil War and was one of the bloodiest battles
in U.S. history up to that time. It was fought from  April 6 to the 7th in southwestern 
Tennessee.

The Confederates, under General Albert S. Johnston, were forced to retreat from 
the battle, ending hopes of blocking the Union army and Major General Ulysses S.
Grant, from advancing into northern Mississippi. Casualties included 2,400 killed
and over 3,000 wounded.
