Presented by the Weider History Group and American Military University

The fact that the first major battle of the Western Theater did not take place until spring 1862 indicates the difficulty both sides had in mobilizing their armies in the much larger and more rugged West. But could a decisive victory at Shiloh have changed the outcome of the war?

Watch American Military University and the Weider History Group's recorded webcast event that highlighted the importance of the Battle of Shiloh and the effect it had on the outcome of the Civil War. Our speakers discussed what would have happened in case of a decisive Confederate victory at Shiloh. Such an event would have removed Grant and Sherman, the Union's two ablest commanders, and would have opened the way to probable further Confederate victories that might have changed the outcome of the war.
