Join Luke Stedke and learn about the major role Ohio played in the pivotal Battle of Shiloh. The men and material of the Buckeye State not only save the day on the second day of battle, but this victory propelled one Ohioan in particular, to General in Chief of the Army and ultimately to the Presidency of the United States. Gen Ulysses S. Grant will be a focus of the course along with other notable Ohioans-Gen. William T. Sherman, Gen. Alexander M. McCook.

Enjoy an engaging discussion of the American Civil War and learn how the State of Ohio saved the Union!
