A Union Army officer tells Andrews that Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard was "moving up to attack Grant at Shiloh." Beauregard was actually second-in-command before the Shiloh attack. Confederate Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston was in charge. Beaurgeard did take over after Johnston's death during the battle. Also, Shiloh was a surprise attack on Grant's Union army. Grant's target was Corinth, Miss. The Confederate's launched a surprise attack from Corinth, on Grant's army at Pittsburg Landing, in Tennessee, in what would become known as the Battle of Shiloh. Therefore, an officer talking to Andrews would have had no prior knowledge of the attack in advance. See more
