Like most state monuments at battlefields the Alabama monument at Shiloh lists the various units engaged at the battle. This one goes the extra step of listing the various commanding officers as well as the two general officers from the state. I changed the order of how the information was inscribed on the monument just so that the order flowed better to my eye. It is located near the Wheeler monument from last week's posts.
