Additional Information on the 1861-1862 Mississippi Campaign

Thanks for making last night's presentation a success! For those who are interested in reading more about Forts Henry and Donelson and the Battle of Shiloh there are a number of free items available on the web. These include the old National Park Service (NPS) handbook on Shiloh, a US Army Staff Ride Handbook on the campaign, and excellent articles by noted authors Dwight S. Hughes, Kendall Gott, and Timothy B. Smith on Riverine warfare, on Forts Henry and Donelson, and on Shiloh respectively at the Essential Civil War Curriculum website maintained by Virginia Tech University.

Additionally you can view the NPS websites on Donelson and Shiloh.

Finally, you can find additional information from NPS (with helpful links) on Fort Donelson and Shiloh online here and here.

Thanks and feel free to write to us with any questions or comments!
