Excerpt from Opening of the Battle of Shiloh
Fifty years ago next Saturday, the great battle of Shiloh opened, on a beautiful, balmy, April, Sunday morning. It was the first great battle of the Civil War. It was at the time the greatest battle in our history - the greatest on... the western hemisphere - and to-day it remains one of the great battles of our great war and of modern times and one of the greatest in importance, for who can divine the far-reaching results to this nation and the world had our army there and then met defeat, or had its victory been promptly and vigorously fol lowed up!
