The Red Pond At Shiloh is my new short story. The story follows wounded private Frank Barlow as he comes to terms being wounded and alone in the dark after the first days fighting at the Battle of Shiloh.

The battle was the biggest and bloodiest fight up to that point. It was fought April 6-7, 1862. Confederate Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston brought his Confederate mostly untested army up from Corinth Mississippi to attack Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and his Army of the Tennessee before the Army of the Ohio, under Maj. Gen. Don Carlos Buell, could join it. The Rebels surprised the Yankees near Shiloh church. What followed was a 2 day nightmare, and both sides found out what the war was really going to be.
If you get a chance to visit the battlefield, go for it. I enjoyed it as well as any. You can really get the battle in your mind's eye while traveling over the huge area.
