Battle of Shiloh
Apr. 6-7, 1862

4 mi. N.E., Albert Sidney Johnston's Army of the Mississippi (CS), marching north from Corinth, attacked and partly overran U.S. Grant's Army of the Tennessee (US), which was en route by river to destroy the (CS) base. Arrival of Buell's Army of the Ohio (US), and its entry into the second day's fighting neutralized earlier Confederate success and forced withdrawal to Corinth.
