"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."

If that is your basis for calling Shiloh a draw than that is an extremely narrow view of the situtation.

And any author, like Thomas Buell, who feels the need to bash one general in order to raise up another one should be taken with a grain of salt.

"The reason for the controversy is your statement is incorrect."

Incorrect according to whom???

Everyone else on this thread has agreed with me. You're the only one who has an issue with it and it's only because of semantics.
