Rate this:
Thirty-two Years after the battle of Shiloh Lew Wallace returned to the battlefield, mapping the route of his April 1962 march. Ulysses S. Grant, Wallace's commander at Shiloh, attributed Wallace's late arrival to the battle to a failure to obey orders. Shiloh still defines Wallace's military reputation, overshadowing the rest of his stellar military career. Wallace was devoted to the Union, but he was also pursuing glory, fame, and honor when he volunteered to serve in April 1861. Author Stephens specifically addresses Wallace's military career and its place in the larger context of Civil War military history.
