Yes, history is only as accurate as the person telling it.  There is a reason I cringe whenever I hear "Yankee Doodle Dandy" sung.  I admit, the only stories I've ever read about Shiloh begins with men baynotted in their tents.  Ahhh alas Ole!  This interpretaion makes much more sense.  So what is your interpreation of Lew Wallace's reserves at Stoney Lonesome?  He is rolling in his grave for me taking his name in vain at this moment but I feel confused with his orders.  Who was really at fault for the delay of his reinforcements?
