On April 6, 1862, Confederate General Johnston attacked General Ulysses Grant's army, which was camped near Shiloh Church in Tennessee.
In the battle, General Johnston died and the Confederate command went to General Beauregard.
The next morning, General Grant led a counterattack on the Confederates, forcing them to retreat.
Although it was a Union victory, the Battle of Shiloh resulted in the deaths of 13,000 Union soldiers and 11,000 Confederate ones.
For many people, the Battle of Shiloh showed not only Grant's willingness to spill blood, but also that the war would be a violent one.
