44710Confederate Battle Plan for Shiloh 1862
- Nov 6, 2007List members,
I am writing an article about the Battle of Shiloh and wanted to know
if anyone can provide an explanation for the unique battle plan used
by General PGT Beauregard. He deployed each corps in a single line
rather than assigning sectors to them (left center, right, reserve).
I would also be interested in any reference material explaining why he
I have read several accounts of the battle including "Shiloh: Bloody
April" by Wiley Sword, articles by Stacey Allen (park historian),
"Army of the Heartland" by TL Connelly and the booklet published by
Eastern National for the battlefield park. None give any reasons for
the strange deployment, although most indicate that it created serious
problems for command, control and movement.
