Union Major General Ulysses S. GrantDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Union Major General Ulysses S. Grant

Description: In a highly fictionalized illustration, Union Major General Ulysses S. Grant (Hiram Ulysses Grant; April 27, 1822-July 23, 1885), American military officer, Lieutenant General and commander of all Union armies (from 1863) during the Civil War, and eighteenth President of the U.S. (1869-1877), center, leads his men on horseback in a wild charge at the Battle of Shiloh (AKA: Battle of Pittsburg Landing; April 6-7, 1862); Grant led no charge at all at this battle since he had suffered injuries shortly before the battle began when a horse fell on him and he was convalescing on board a Union gunboat, moving about with crutches; Grant and his most trusted lieutenant, Major General William T. Sherman (William Tecumseh Sherman; February 8, 1820-February 14, 1891) reported to Washington shortly before this battle that they did not expect any kind of Confederate attack, but more than 50,000 Confederates led by General Albert Sidney Johnston (February 2, 1803-April 6, 1862) attacked the ill-defended and much disorganized Federal lines near Pittsburgh Landing, demolishing several Union divisions and capturing thousands of Federal prisoners before Grant and Sherman regrouped to counter-attack the next day, regaining most of their lost ground; Johnston was killed and his replacement, General P.G.T. Beauregard Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard; May 28, 1818-February 20, 1893), continued piecemeal attacks toward the end of the first day of the battle and several ineffective counterattacks the second day before retreating toward Corinth, Mississippi; Shiloh remained a tactical Union victory, but barely so, with Grant suffering 13,047 casualties (1,754 killed; 8,408 wounded; 2885 captured or missing) while Confederate losses were 10,699 (1,728 killed; 8,012 wounded; 959 captured or wounded); Grant was severely criticized for his shabby defenses at Shiloh, some even saying that he was drunk during the battle, but President Abraham Lincoln refused to remove him from command, saying that "he fights"
