Author to sign book at Civil War Museum

KENOSHA — Author Larry Tagg will be presenting a free program and signing copies of his book, “The Generals of Shiloh: Character in Leadership, April 6-7, 1862,” at noon today at the Civil War Museum, 5400 First Ave.

Tagg’s book is “a unique and invaluable study of the high-ranking combat officers whose conduct in April 1862 helped determine the success or failure of their respective armies, the fate of the war in the Western Theater and, in turn, the fate of the American union,” according to his publisher.

“Generals of Shiloh,” which is modeled after his best-selling book “The Generals of Gettysburg,” presents detailed background information on each of his subjects, coupled with a thorough account of each man’s actions on the field of Shiloh and, if he survived that battle, his fate thereafter.

Generals involved with this battle include Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman and Don Carlos Buell. Many more men, whose names crossed the stage of furious combat only to disappear in the smoke on the far side, also populate these pages.

Tagg, a native of Lincoln, Ill., graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. He is also a bass player/singer and has performed with musicians including Todd Rundgren, Heart and Hall and Oates.
