A visit to General William Sherman's Shiloh HQ site

On April 6, 1862, the first day of the Battle of Shiloh, Union General William Sherman made his headquarters at this site. It's 200 or so yards off a road in the national battlefield park.


  1. Dennis, Oak Ridge, TN. I enjoy your videos and have been watching them for quite some time. As a suggestion with sites like Sherman's HQ, it would be helpful if you could describe the ground at the time of the battle; e.g. treed, cleared, etc. It's difficult to get that perspective seeing how the area looks today. Excellent job; keep it coming.

  2. Garth, Wilmette, IL. Great job as always John. Would also be helpful to know the scope of the battle, why it was fought here and the commanding generals. Hallowed ground for sure. Thanks!
