At the beginning of the Battle of Shiloh, the Confederacy caught the Union by surprise. However, one Union Colonel suspected that an attack was coming, and he formed his men into a defensive line that bought the rest of the Union troops time to join the fight. Instead of a quick Confederate victory, both armies faced a bloody battle of attrition.

Chris Calton recounts the controversial history of the Civil War. You may support this podcast financially at Subscribe today at Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, SoundCloud, Stitcher, or via RSS.
