Why Shiloh Matters

When I teach the Civil War I concentrate on the three big ones, Antietam, Shiloh and Gettyburg.  Well if you wanted your students to look in a bit of depth on Shiloh here is a great piece in the NYTimes on Shiloh by the author of the new book Shiloh 1862.  While it is billed as "an opinion," it  is just the facts and not only descriptive, but concise and interesting to read.  If you use Google Docs, you could go back to your document and add this for students to read and answer a few questions and have it cued up for next year's students.
