What was the significance of the Battle of Shiloh in Kentucky?

The Battle of Shiloh (April 1862) did not occur in Kentucky. It occured near the river hamlet of Pittsburgh Landing, on the Tennessee River, in the state of Tennesee, about 10 miles north of the Mississippii-Tennesee state line. However it did affect affairs in the state of Kentucky. Kentucky was a border state and officially neutral. Confederate leaders, both military and political, wished to add Kentucky to the Confederacy. In 1861 Confederate General Leonidas Polk invaded Kentucky hoping to turn that state and its population to the Southern Cause. (the invasion is considered one of the most serious political blunders by the South.) That invasion, as did three others during the course of the Civil War, were failures. The Battle of Shiloh, while not ending Confederate intentions in Kentucky, certainly lessened their effectiveness. Simply stated the Union victory at Shiloh ensured the neutrality of Kentucky.
