The Shiloh Campaign consisted of the battles of Fort Henry, Fort Donelson and two months later the Battle of Shiloh. Grant won major victories in all three battles resulting in the opening up both the Columbia and Tennessee rivers to Union control with the defeat of Forts Henry and Donelson.

The Battle of Fort Henry was the first of three battles in an effort to gain control of rivers and supply lines west of the Appalachians, Union Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant and Commodore Andrew Foote launched an attack on the lightly defended Fort Henry in Tennessee. After a fierce naval bombardment, Confederate Brigadier General Lloyd Tilghman secretly evacuated the bulk of his troops to nearby Fort Donelson before surrendering to Union forces.

The fall of Fort Henry, followed 10 days later by the capture of Fort Donelson, opened up both the Columbia and Tennessee rivers to Union control, cutting off Confederate access to two key waterways for the remainder of the war.

The 2 day Battle of Shiloh, was the costliest in American history up to that time, resulted in the defeat of the Confederate army and frustration of Johnston's plans to prevent the two Union armies in Tennessee from joining together.

Both sides were shocked at the carnage. No one suspected three more years of such bloodshed remained and eight larger and bloodier battles were yet to come. The war would continue, at great cost in casualties and resources, until the Confederacy succumbed or the Union was divided.
