Battle of Shiloh was a major Union Victory in the "West" Tennessee, It was a much needed victory for at the same time Robert E. Lee and the Confederates were doing well in the East Virginia, so Grant's win at Shiloh was a morale boost. It also moved the Union closer to its "western goal" of gaining control of the Mississippi River thus " dividing and conquering the South.
