The Battle of Shiloh was the first battle in the Civil War with a lot of death and suffering. The Battle of Shiloh also taught that both sides need to send out scouts, dig trenches, and build fortifications.
The Battle of Shiloh happened in Hardin County, Tennessee. It is named the Battle of Shiloh because it was fought near Shiloh Church, and it is also the Battle of Pittsburg Landing.
