The Iron Duke wrote: The Confederates were counterattacked off the battlefield and fled back to Corinth. I don't see what is so controversial about my statement.  Leaving a battlefield voluntarily would be Bragg at Stones River or Lee at Gettysburg but that is not the case with Shiloh.

I beg your pardon.  The counter attack put everyone at the same place on the battlefield as when they started.  When the fighting was over, then the Confederate army withdrew to Corinth.  The point is, both armies were still intact.

The reason for the controversy is your statement is incorrect.
