Thanks for your submission to History Hub.
Yes, that is a lot of material! Speaking from personal experience, I always go through the digitized version by chapter when I’m searching for something, using only the name of the state, since the reports don’t always designate infantry, artillery or cavalry. Yes, it is time consuming, but you’ll develop a pattern. If you’re looking for something specific to Shiloh, you can go straight to the chapter that would contain info on operations in Tennessee during March and April 1862.
Good luck with your research, and feel free to contact us with additional questions.
