The Battle of Shiloh
After initial success, the Confederates are dealt a costly blow in Tennessee in April, 1862 at the battle of Shiloh. This video explains that Grant won the battle for the United States against the Confederacy and set the tone that the Union Army under Grant was willing to expend whatever manpower was necessary to win the war.
