The recent Civil War Bloggers Top 10 Gettysburg Books list turned out well, so well that I immediately contacted the members of the Shiloh Discussion Group to see if they would join me in creating another combined list, this time of the Top 7 Shiloh books, which will appear this August at TOCWOC on a permanent page designed for this event. SDG members have been posting their lists of the Top 7 Shiloh books over the last month with a deadline of August 1. The following is SDG group member mona’s list of the Top 7 Shiloh Books.
My book list –
1–Shiloh National Miltary Park(NPS)-Dillahunty–this was my very first book and yes is raggedly and red.
2-Shiloh–Shelby Foote–my second book-both this one and #1 and the movie I rec.to people when they plan a visit so they wont be so overhelmed and have a very basic understanding then we grow from there.
3-Cunningham and Smith–Shiloh and the Western Campaign
4-Manning and Force–From Fort Henry to Corinth
5-The Official records-War of the RebellionVol10/#10-11
6-All the diaries and personal letters and regimental Hx –as these guys were there.
7-But the best textbook is the grounds itself you can read it on paper but it all comes together when you walk the grounds.
