Union Troops First Day of BattleDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Union Troops First Day of Battle

Description: Union troops break ranks and flee before the onslaught of Confederate forces under the command of General Albert Sidney Johnston (February 2, 1803-April 6, 1862) at the Battle of Shiloh, Tennessee (April 6-7, 1862); on this first day of the battle, which appeared to be an overwhelming Rebel victory, Johnston was mortally wounded and died within a short time, the command falling to P.G.T. Beauregard (Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard; May 28, 1818-February 20, 1893), who sent his troops piecemeal against Union divisions under General Ulysses S. Grant (Hiram Ulysses Grant; April 27, 1822-July 23, 1885) with the intent of driving Union forces into Owl Creek to the West of the Tennessee River before they could link up with the Federal Army of the Ohio led by General Don Carlos Buell (March 23, 1818-November 19, 1898); Buell, however, arrived that night and Grant launched a counter-attack the following day, April 7, 1862, that regained all of his lost ground, although thousands of his troops had been captured; the Confederates lost more than 13,000 troops in killed, wounded and missing (out of more than 48,000 effectives) and the Federals suffered more than 10,000 casualties in killed, wounded and missing (out of more than 44,000 effectives);
