Attack at Daylight and Whip Them

Attack at daylight and whip them was the Confederate general Albert Sidney Johnston's plan on the morning of April 6, 1862. The unsuspecting Union Army of the Tennessee, commanded by Major General Ulysses S. Grant, had gathered on the banks of its namesake river at a spot called Pittsburg Landing, ready to strike deep into the heart of Tennessee Confederates. Johnston's troops were reeling from setbacks earlier in the year and had decided to reverse their fortunes by taking the fight to the Federals.

Speaker Greg Mertz currently serves as the Supervisory Historian at the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park. He is presently writing a book for the Emerging Civil War Series on the Battle of Shiloh.
