Overview

Thirty-two years after the battle of Shiloh Lew Wallace returned to the battlefield, mapping the route of his April 1862 march. Ulysses S. Grant expected Wallace and his Third Division to arrive early in the afternoon of April 6, but they did not arrive until nightfall. In the aftermath of the bloodbath of Shiloh, Grant attributed Wallace's late arrival to a failure to obey orders. By mapping the route, the sixty-seven-year-old Wallace hoped to remove the stigma of "Shiloh and its slanders." However, Shiloh still defines Wallace's military reputation and overshadows the rest of his stellar military career. In Shadow of Shiloh, Stephens specifically addresses Wallace's military career and its place in the larger context of Civil War military history.
