A View of Shiloh

My profile of James Franklin Putnam of the Eighth Independent Battery Ohio Light Artillery (current print issue of the Civil War News) is now available online!

An excerpt: “Had we lost this battle,” wrote 22-year-old Union artillery Pvt. James F. Putnam, “We would have been driven backwards into the Tennessee river, and thousands would have met with a watery grave or been crushed beneath the wheels and heels of thousands of horses and wagons that crowded its banks.”
