Images from Shiloh: Some State Monuments, Pennsylvania and the U.S. Navy

One of best parts of our Shiloh trip was the meal at the end of the day!  Nothing like hamburger, potatoes, onions and carrots cooked in charcoal.

Final images from Shiloh:

 30th Regiment Indiana Volunteers.

 State of Tennessee Memorial.

State of Illinois Memorial.

 Honorable Son #5 asked me if there were any Pennsylvania regiments at Shiloh.  I answered that all of the Pennsylvania units were east with the Army of the Potomac.  About an hour later we ran across the memorial for the only Pennsylvania regiment at Shiloh, the 77th Pennsylvania.

 Crescent Regiment from Louisiana.
The Texas Memorial.

Struck by a stray bullet, General Albert Sidney Johnston died in the ravine marked by this sign.  He is the highest ranking American to be killed in battle.

 The Missouri state Memorial that honors Missouri soldiers that fought for both the Union and the Confederacy.

Dill Branch Ravine where wooden gunboats the USS Lexington and USS Tyler anchored opposite the mouth of Dill Branch to Major General Grant's defense of Pittsburg Landing.
