Battle of Shiloh

BATTLE OF SHILOH

Wednesday-Saturday, Oct 28-31, 2020

 

Enrollment fee is $550 (Does not include lodging)

 

 

Battlefield Guide - Author and leading Shiloh battlefield expert, Tim Smith is scheduled to lead this tour.

In the spring of 1862, Union forces engaged Confederate troops in a series of campaigns waged for control of Kentucky and western Tennessee. At stake were a number of critical waterways and rail lines that led to the heartland of the South. This tour provides an in-depth look at the Battle of Shiloh (April 6-7, 1862). With five times the casualties of First Manassas, Shiloh was the bloodiest battle in United States history up to that time. We will also examine the Battle of Corinth.

Thursday, October 29, 2020

In an attempt to destroy the Western Union offensive once and for all, Confederate forces – under Albert Sidney Johnston – attacked Grant’s Army camped near Shiloh Church. We will begin the day with a lecture by Tim Smith. Then we will walk the hallowed ground of Fraley’s Field, the Peach Orchard, Bloody Pond and the Hornets’ Nest.

 

Friday, October 30, 2020

The Confederates achieved considerable success on the first day of the battle, but as we’ll learn today, they were ultimately defeated on Day 2. We will tour Pittsburg Landing, Grant’s Last Line and Water Oaks Pond. This crushing defeat ended Confederate hopes of blocking the Union advance into northern Mississippi.

 

Saturday, October 31, 2020

Following the Battle of Shiloh, the Confederate army fell back to Corinth. We’ll trace their route and visit sites associated with the siege of Corinth on October 3-4, 1862 and the Battle of the Davis Bridge. The tour ends back at the Holiday Inn Express at approximately 4:30 pm.
