Grant and Sherman meet at Shiloh
Shiloh was a major battle in the Civil War fought on the 6th and 7th of April, 1862. Grant was the commanding general of the Union at the “Battle of Pittsburgh landing.” He held an air of confidence and did not give off the aura of defeat after the first day of battle. An interesting interaction between two individuals was when Grant met Sherman during the midst of battle. Grant said, “I never deemed it important to stay long with Sherman.” This shows the respect Grant held for what was another key General during the war. Grant did not seem worried about the “crazy” label designated to Sherman by a reporter.
