Movie Details

One of the bloodiest and militarily greatest battles occurred along the riverbanks of Shiloh, TN, during the War Between the States. This battle is considered one of the first major battles of engagement during that war -- a two-day conflict in April 1862 between Union forces under the commands of Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Don Carlos Buell and Confederate forces under General Albert Sidney Johnston. This battle was a loss for Union forces, who were attempting to defend a region where the Tennessee and Mississippi rivers meet. The result was the loss of two Union forts, many lives, and a railroad line connecting Memphis to Charleston. This video tells a fascinating tale from U.S. history. ~ Forrest Spencer, Rovi
