Publisher's Summary

In this missive, Ambrose Bierce recounts two days -April 6, and April 7, 1862 - perhaps the two most significant days of his life. He and over 100,000 other combatants have gathered about a small church near the town of Corinth, "a wretched place - the capital of a swamp, two days' march west of the Tennessee River". The church is Shiloh, and it will lend its name to the great battle that is to take place there.

Vivid description of a Civil War battlefield

Very interesting description of what its like to be in the thick of battle. In a word, horrific.
Interesting book, I recommend this to anyone who loves to be transported to a different era.

A great piece of 19th literature

A bit hard for a modern reader to understand, but beautiful prose describing horrendous and hideouts vistas.
