Albert Sidney Johnston, thought by Confederate President Jefferson Davis to be
the brightest and best of his generals, was killed at the Battle of Shiloh on
April 6, 1861. Not realizing the seriousness of his injury, Johnston sent his
surgeon to tend to the wounded elsewhere and subsequently bled to death.
