I don't see any source that could be earth shattering enough to change Shiloh to a CS victory, it's stretching it to call it a draw.

I've seen recent claims on the web that battles like Atlanta & Shiloh were actually CS victories...I have to scratch my head and ask why when it's clear the men who fought them considered them US victories or CS losses depending upon the perspective. Come to think of it I recall seeing a claim that the CS actually won the battle of Missionary Ridge... that takes some serious alternate reality thinking.

I've spoken to Mr Redding in the past and do look forward to any earth shaking discoveries he might have made. The others I am only vaguely familiar w/ but do look forward to what they have to say... as to any of the three claiming Shiloh as somehow a CS victory; I just can't see it.
