Historical Novel of the Battle of Shiloh, American Civil War, April 6th, 1862 Hope is not a plan ... Hope is not an answer On a frigid cold and rain filled Sunday morning, April 6th, 1862, less than a year removed from the opening salvos of the American Civil War, two American armies fought each other beside the Tennessee River in southwestern Tennessee in the war to save the Union of the United States of America: the Union Army of the Tennessee, nearly 40,000 men strong, and the Confederate Army of the Mississippi, nearly 44,000 men strong. Neither army would have chosen this ground, weather, day or time - Once the battle was joined, neither could withdraw. Two armies, Americans all, young and old, inexperienced in the brutality of war, or the killing power of muskets and cannons, unleashed the most pitched, furious, ruthless and vicious conflict America had ever seen, at a place called Pittsburg Landing, on the fields surrounding a church that would forever bear the name of an epic struggle: Shiloh By the time the sun set on April 7th, the carnage of blood horrified a nation: 23,746 men killed, wounded or missing in less than 48 hours – more casualties than America had suffered in all her previous wars combined to that date. 23,746 men: 48 hours Each man an individual with dreams and goals, ambitions and motives and fears forever shattered in countless acts of bravery, cowardice and death upon the fields of Shiloh. Each man a story - a history - a sacrifice – an Offering... Who were these men who fought and killed, bled and cried in agony, maimed forever and left to die upon the fields of Shiloh? Who were these Offerings of Shiloh? You’re about to find out...
