Covering the period of Shiloh to the prelude to Vicksburg, Volume 5 of this distinguished series converges on the many dramatic changes taking place in Grants military career.

The bloody two-day battle of Shiloh, the dominating event covered in this volume, shocked both North and South, caused public opinion to run against Grant, placed his career at a low point, and tested his will to remain in service. The period, therefore, is significant for the portrait emerging of Grant meeting a variety of problems ranging from grand strategy to mundane detail. The volume is particularly rich also in unpublished letters and documents from some twenty-two institutions and nine private collections here opened for the first time.
