Shiloh Photos (Part 1)

Cherry Mansion at Savannah, TN viewed from the Tennessee River landing.  US Grant was finishing breakfast on the second floor porch when he heard the sounds of battle coming from Shiloh, about 10 miles to the south.
William Manse George cabin, bewtween Peach Orchard and Sunken Road.  This period cabin was moved from another part of the battlefield as the original was destroyed on April 6, 1862.  This was typical of the dwellings at Pittsburg Landing- a stark contrast to the homes of Savannah.
The Bloody Pond as seen from the Sunken Road.  The only source of water on this portion of the battlefield,  it was used by thirsty and wounded soldiers from both sides as it was held, lost and regained by the Federal troops.
