In Shelby Foote's, "The Civil War", he describes how Nathan Bedford Forrest was injured during the organized rebel retreat from Shiloh on day 2. According to Foote, Forrest and his troopers encountered some Union infantry. Forrest called for a charge, but ended up largely alone among the Union troops. He ended up being shot in the gut (or the side) at point blank range as some called for him to be knocked off his horse. Forrest grabbed a union soldier, pulled the bluecoat onto Forrest's horse (for cover) and galloped off. Foote also seemed to indicate that Sherman was there? Or, was Sherman just proximate to the incident because he was commanding troops as part of the Union attack?
In the podcast "History Unplugged: History of the Civil War in 10 Battles, Part 4; The Battle of Shiloh" they tell the story and Forrest just pulling a bluecoat onto his horse for cover and ignore the injury all together.
This article on History.com suggests Forrest was injured leading a cavalry charge and then kept fighting.
Has anyone uncovered/organized some some info specifically about this incident? It's pretty fantastical (especially crazy if Sherman was there) and I'd like to know what happened.
