Confederate Military History
and additional info researched by Steve Cole

  This Organizational Table of the Army of the Mississippi has been expanded to add details about the commanders and regiments that fought at Shiloh.  As I studied more about Shiloh, I began to find out facts about the commanders.  So, I began to compile this with the organizational table so it would be easy to associate with a unit or command.  The initial purpose I created this detailed table was to tell what became of some of the commanders and soldiers.
    The Organizational Table is listed by Corps and Division, etc.  I have added info on some of the commanders in a color code to distinguish the type of info.  The strength of each unit is listed next to the unit.  The numbers appear to be rounded off to nearest hundreds; but maybe these are accurate.  Below are some of the color codes and legends.
(Pre-Shiloh)-  Info dates prior to the battle.    Ex. USMA class 1857
(Shiloh)-  Info about battle.     Ex: (w-mortally) = mortally wounded
{Post-Shiloh }- Info dates after the battle, including promotions, or after the War.
[Unit history]- Details about the regiment.
[400] - Number following regiment is total strenght at Shiloh.
4S6LB  - Identifies quantity and type of artillery.  See Legend at bottom of page.

Basically Green is info dated before Shiloh, Red relates to the battle and Blue is info dating after the battle.  And [square brackets] relates to the regiment and (parenthesis) or {parenthesis} relates to the commanders, before and after the battle.

  "It remains to state that our loss on the two days, in killed outright, was 1,728; wounded, 8,012, and missing, 959; making an aggregate of casualties, 10,699.    This sad list tells in simple language of the stout fight made by our countrymen in front of the rude log  chapel of Shiloh, especially when it is known that on Monday, from exhaustion and other causes, not 20,000 men on our side could be brought into action."                       (Beauregard's report)
