Bama it still would be exciting to come to Shiloh by boat either way up river or down.  While reading Cunningham's book for a book group this month one of the members told all of us his ancestor was killed during the fighting near the church.  He has never been to Shiloh .  He said reading the book helped him understand what it was like for the ancestor.  This was a Confederate ancestor.  Then while we were discussing the battle one of the others said her Union ancestor was there too.  Made the whole discussion very personal for all of us.
