Chapter III

WE heard of the battle of Shiloh while on garrison duty at Fort Donelson. Immediately thereafter, we were transported by steamer down the Cumberland again, passed Paducah and up the Tennessee to Pittsburg landing, the only incidents of note on the way being a few volleys from the muskets and carbines of roving bands of the enemy who fired upon the boats from the bluffs between Ft. Heiman and Pittsburg landing, as they passed up the river, that resulted in wounding some of the men who occupied every part of the boats from the boiler decks to the top of the hurricane roofs. Arriving at Shiloh the men were put into camp near the right center of a large army and near the Purdy road. The great conflict had left its mark and impress upon every visible thing in field and forest. About the river bank and landing, baggage wagons, caisons, broken muskets, battered tents and dead animals were promiscuously strewn together, and further out, great trees were cut down or torn to pieces by the heavy batteries that had sent their shot and shell screeching and howling among the branches.
