My name is Tafka and this has pretty much just become a blog for sharing attractive pieces of folk and Americana.

April 6, 1862. The Battle at Shiloh.
General Sherman, now alerted that something was amiss, had roused his men and was riding the lines, stopping here and there to peer through his field glass at the thick woods to his front. Halting near an Ohio regiment, he scanned the woods again – “General, look to your right!” exclaimed an Ohio officer. To Sherman’s right, a terrible enemy battle line emerged from the woods, stopped, aimed and fired. “My God!” yelled Sherman, throwing up his arms as if to swat away the lead, “we are attacked!”
