Episode of Shiloh: The Devil's Own Day

Episode 1 of 1
More from this Series

On April 6 and 7, 1862, more than 100,000 Union and Confederate soldiers clashed near a small, log-cabin church in west Tennessee named after the Hebrew word for "peace" - Shiloh. The Battle of Shiloh, one of the bloodiest conflicts ever fought on American soil, rewrote the notion of war as "glorious." Nearly 24,000 soldiers were killed, missing or wounded. SHILOH: THE DEVIL'S OWN DAY movingly explores the human cost of these two days through the tragic stories of the men and women involved in this conflict. The documentary recounts this pivotal chapter in American history through interviews with noted historians, battle re-enactments and a performance by William Lee Golden of "Shiloh's Hill," a Civil War-era song written by a veteran of the battle.
