On April 6 and 7 of 1862, Union and Confederate forces slugged it out at Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River. Combined casualties were close to 24,000. Each side had more than 1,700 killed.

Ohio contributed 27 infantry regiments, 6 artillery units and 1 cavalry unit.

One writer said it was Grant's worst day. Overall added, "Although surprised about an attack from the southwest, Grant made no mistakes on the battlefield, did not retreat at the end of the first day of battle, and prepared to attack on the next day With its high casualties, the Battle of Shiloh, perhaps, has become the most controversial battle of the Civil War."
