There are a lot of misconceptions out there about Shiloh, Ulysses S. Grant himself remarking that it was the most misunderstood battle of the war. In preparation for the upcoming tour of Shiloh in 2021, we need to start with the basics and determine fact from fiction. Before we get into the real story of the battlefield itself, it is helpful to discuss some of the most prevailing misconceptions of the battle. As a result, this workshop will examine the top ten myths of Shiloh, placing them in context of when they came about and why they are faulty. Only once we have dug out the myths can we then concentrate on the real story.
