Publisher's Summary

At daybreak on April 6, 1862, Confederate forces launched a bold suprise attack on the Union army, encamped in southwestern Tennesse. The battle of Shiloh, also known as the battle of Pittsburg Landing, would prove to be the bloodiest battle up until that point in United Staes history. The two day battle would cost a staggering 23,000 casualties. Both sides were stunned at the appalling loss of life. At the time, neither realized that three more years of such bloodshed were still to come.
These are detailed and moving first-hand accounts, from generals to privates, about their experiences participating in this dramatic and historically significant battle.
Brilliantly narrated in northern and southern accents by a professional actor and gifted voice talent, this unique audiobook vividly brings to life the words and heartfelt sentiments of those who wrote these riveting accounts.
Includes accounts from:


William T. Sherman
P.G.T. Beauregard
Ulysses S. Grant
William Preston Johnston
Lew Wallace
Warren Onley
Thomas Jordan
Benjamin Mayberry Prentiss
Wilber F. Crummer

Grammatical errors.

As a student of the event, I am happy I purchased the book. I do wish more stories from common soldiers like Stilwell and Stanley had been added, however. It does seem that the narrator has problems with pronouncing "r"s as Hurlbut is called "Halibut" early on and McClearnand is continuously called McClellan. One would think he would have noticed the actual spelling at some point.
