They Met at Shiloh is the catalyst moment for tens of thousands of soldiers as their first horrific encounter with the reality of what the war truly is. On Shiloh's fields a disgraced Methodist minister, a Mississippi youth, a rough Texan, and a Missourian Unionist contend not only with their own demons but also with the clash of arms that swirls around them, altering courses and lives forever.
A Certain Death is what the survivors of Shiloh know is coming as the Federal army at Pittsburg Landing prepares to march on Corinth, MS. The Confederate siege lines are long and well prepared and a direct assault will leave many more comrades dead upon the fields. For Confederates captured at Shiloh, their journey takes them to Ohio and a miserable existence behind ten foot high log fencing. A trip home for one to accept a commission and a plan to break out of prison for a handful of Confederates bring foes together in unlikely accord.
Iuka to Corinth will complete a plan by Confederates to wrest control of Northern Mississippi from Union control and trap an army between two superior forces. An escaped Confederate and the slave that got away come face to face on a river boat and the Confederate has a dilemma: finish escaping or finish what he'd started before the war. A recruiting trip from Ohio to deliver new volunteers down the Cumberland River to Nashville is diverted to the Tennessee River and to a familiar place: Pittsburg Landing. The boat the Confederates are on is diverted to the same location. The Union crises in Mississippi could wreck freedom for the runaway slave, threaten life and limb for his captor, and bring untimely death to a newly minted chaplain and his brother.
