(A Google search will find vast amounts of info regarding Shiloh & the Ogelthorpe Prison Camp, the 12th Iowa)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Shiloh
....The Battle of Shiloh or Battle of Pittsburg Landing, a major battle, fought April 6&7, 1862, in southwestern Tennessee.
....A Union army under Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant had moved down the Tennessee River deep into Tennessee, and encamped mainly at Pittsburg Landing on the west bank of the river.
....Confederate forces under Generals Albert Sidney Johnston and P. G. T. Beauregard launched a surprise attack on Grant.
....The Confederates had good success on the first day, but were considered defeated on the second day.


The first day:
....The Confederates intended to drive Union ranks away from the river, into the wetlands of Owl Creek to the west.
....The objective was to defeat Grant's Army of the Tennessee before being joined by Maj. Gen. Don Carlos Buell's Army of the Ohio.
....The Confederate battle lines became confused during fierce fighting but were besting the Union forces.
....Grant's men were trying to fall back to the northeast, in the direction of Pittsburg Landing.
....A slightly sunken road position, the "Hornet's Nest", was defended providing time for the rest of the Union line to stabilize under the protection artillery batteries nearer to the river.
....The confederate decision was against assaulting the final Union position that night of the first day.



Hornet’s Nest:
....In the center of the main Union line, starting at about 9:00 a.m. on the first day a defensive position, later nicknamed the Hornet's Nestwas was established and held.
....The position was in a field along a road that would be later called the "Sunken Road."
.... The Confederates assaulted the position with 8-14 separate charges for several hours, rather then electing to go around it.
....The Confederate troops suffered heavy casualties during the assaults.
....The Hornet's Nest would stand alone as Union troops on both sides were forced or elected to move back.
....Overall coordination among units around the Hornet's Nest was poor.
....Union units withdrew based on their own command decisions.
....Regiments became disorganized; companies disintegrated.
....The position held until over 50 Confederate cannons were assembled to blast at the Hornet's Ness at close range.
....After holding for about seven hours, surrounded on three sides and blasted point blank cannon fire the Hornet's Nest fell.
....Union General Prentiss surrendered the remains of his division to the Confederates.
....Union survivors of 2,200 to 2,400 men, were captured at Shiloh.
....Henry Beadle, age 45yr, Co.C, 12th Iowa, surrendered at Hornet's Nest on Apr 6, 1862.
....Henry Beadle would die Aug 10, 1862 in the Oglethorpe Prison Camp at Oglethrope.GA.

....General Grant had been allowed time by the Hornet's Nest to establish a defense line near Pittsburg Landing by the end of the first day.




The second day
:
....Union reinforcements arrived in the evening of the first day; the Confederates had not continued to battle into the evening.
....Union commanders launched a counterattack along the entire line the second day.
....The Confederates were forced to retreat from the bloodiest battle up to that time,
....thus ending the Confederate attempt to block Union advancement into northern Mississippi.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Shiloh
....Shiloh was the costliest in American history up to that time.
....It resulted in the defeat of the Confederate army at the time, Johnston's attempt to stop the two Union armies joining together.
....Union casualties were 13,047 (1,754 killed, 8,408 wounded, and 2,885 missing).
....Grant's army, which saw the brunt of the fighting over the two days had most of the casualties (1,513 killed, 6,601 wounded, and 2,830 missing or captured).
....Confederate casualties were 10,699 (1,728 killed, 8,012 wounded, and 959 missing or captured).
....Both sides were shocked at the carnage.
....Three more years of war would remain, with eight larger and bloodier battles.
....Grant learned a lesson in personal preparation, finding out his prediction of ending the war with one major battle would likely not be possible.



Note: when in full force, a Civil War 'Company' was 100 men; a 'Regiment' 10 Companies or 1000 men; a 'Brigade' 4 Companies or 4000 men; a 'Division' 3 Brigades or 12000 men and a 'Corps' 3 Brigades or 36000men.

Henry Beadle was in Co.C of 100 men, in the 12th Iowa Reg of 1000 men.

From Fitch's 1910 History of Fayette.Co.IA:    http://www.iowaz.info/fayette/fitch1910.htm
 The 12th Iowa Regiment was recruited late in the summer of 1861 and organized at Camp Union, Dubuque.IA, and mustered into service Nov 25, 1861, by Capt. Washington of the 13th U.S. Inf.
....The first active serve for the 12th Reg was at Ft. Donelson and were engaged in battle Feb 13,14,15, 1862. Being exposed to cold rain and sleet without being permitted any fires, they suffered very much.  The Fort surrenderedon the 16th.
....At Shiloh, the 12th was brigaded with the 2nd, 7th & 14th Iowa, forming the 'Iowa Briade' (of 4000 men), commanded by Gen. Tuttle of the 2nd IA Inf.  Gen. W.W. Wallace commanded the division (12000 men), and were in position near a field beyond Gen. Hurlburt's headquarters, where they remained in line of battle (formation) from 6am until 4pm, during which time the enemy make several bold charges, and was repulsed with great loss in killed and wounded.
....The 12th &  14th Iowa Regiments being in support of a battery (cannon), were surrounded, and after several hours of desperate fighting, in which three or four regiments contended against the whole rebel force, the 12th, having its commanding officer, Col. Woods, severely wounded with 16 killed, 97 wounded and hopes of retreat or soccor (help) cut off, were obliged to surrender at 6pm.  The number of men captured from the regiment was about 400 hundred.
....The men of the 8th, 12th, 14th Iowa Regiments not captured were organized into a regiment called the "Union Brigade," of which regiment the 12th formed Companies E & K.
....The Union Brigade was engaged and took a prominent part in the battle of Corinth, Oct 3-4, 1862, the 12th losing 3 killed and 25 wounded out of the 80 men engaged.  After pursuing the enemy as far as Ripley.MS, the regiment returned to Corinth and were engaged in building fortifications until Dec18,1862, as which time orders from the War Department discontinued the organization of the Union Brigade.  The 8th, 12th, 14h Iowa were to proceed to Davenport.IA, to reorganize their Regiments, as the (surviving) prisoners (from Shiloh) had been paroled Oct18,1862 and exchanged Nov10,1862.

....On the morning of April 6, the rebels having attacked our advanced lines at Shiloh, Tenn., the Twelfth Iowa Infantry was rapidly formed and joined the other regiments — the Second, Seventh, and Fourteenth — of the Iowa brigade, being the First Brigade, under Brigadier-General Tuttle, of the Second Division, under General Wallace. The brigade was marched to near the field beyond General Hurlbut’s headquarters and formed in line of battle, the Second and Seventh on our right, the Fourteenth on our left. The Eighth Iowa, of Prentiss’ division, was on the left of the Fourteenth, forming an angle to the rear with our line. An open field lay in front of our right. Dense timber covered our left. A small ravine was immediately behind us. In this position we awaited the approach of the enemy. Soon he made a bold attack on us, but met with a warm reception, and soon we repulsed him. Again and again repeatedly did he attack us, trying vainly to drive us from our position. He failed to move us one inch from our position. On the contrary, we repulsed every attack of the enemy and drove him back in confusion.
....Thus matters stood in our front until about 4 p.m., at which time it became evident, by the firing on our left, that the enemy were getting in our rear. An aide-de-camp rode up and directed me to face to the rear and fall back, stating, in answer to my inquiry, that I would receive orders as to the position I was to occupy. No such orders reached me, and I suppose could not. The Second and Seventh Iowa had already gone to the rear, and on reaching the high ground between our position and General Hurlbut’s headquarters we discovered that we were already surrounded by the enemy, caused by no fault of our own, but by the troops at a distance from us on our right and left giving way before the enemy. Seeing ourselves surrounded, we nevertheless opened a brisk fire on that portion of the enemy who blocked our passage to the Landing, who, after briskly returning our fire for a short time, fell back. A brisk fire from the enemy on our left (previous right) was going on at the same time. Seeing the enemy in front falling back, we attempted by a rapid movement to cut our way through, but the enemy on our left advanced rapidly, coming in behind us, pouring into our ranks a most destructive fire. The enemy in front faced about and opened on us at short range, the enemy in our rear still closing in on us rapidly. I received two wounds, disabling me from further duty. The command then devolved on Captain Edgington, acting as field officer. The enemy had, however, already so closely surrounded us that their balls which missed our men took effect in their ranks beyond us. To have held out longer would have been to suffer complete annihilation. The regiment was therefore compelled to surrender as prisoners of war.
....Lieutenant-Colonel Coulter was much reduced by chronic diarrhea and Major Brodtbeck was suffering from rheumatism. Being myself the only field officer on duty, at my request Captain Edgington acted as a field officer, the duties of which he performed in an able and efficient manner.
....Quartermaster Dorr, though his position did not require him to go into action, volunteered to do so, and throughout the day behaved in a brave and gallant manner, daringly, if not recklessly, exposing his person to the enemy. He made himself very useful in carrying messages and spying out the positions and movements of the enemy and firing on them as occasion offered. Energetic and efficient in his own department, he would fill a higher one with credit to himself and honor to the service.
....Adjutant Duncan proved himself on this, as on all occasions, a faithful and efficient officer.
Captains Earle, Warner, Stibbs, Haddock, Van Duzee, and Townsley performed well their part, as did all the lieutenants in the action, in a prompt and willing manner.
....The non-commissioned officers and men stood bravely up to their work and never did men behave better.
....In the death of Lieutenant Ferguson, of Company D, the regiment lost one of its best-drilled officers and a gallant soldier. It also lost a good man and a good officer in the death of Lieutenant Moir, of Company A.
....J. J. WOODS, Colonel Twelfth Iowa Volunteers. ACTING ASSISTANT ADJUTANT-GENERAL, First Brigade, Second Division.

Oglethorpe Prison Camp, Macon.CA, opened May 1862
(Where Henry Beadle died)

Henry Beadle
died, one can assume from disease,
and was buried unmarked at Oglethorpe Prison Camp on Aug.10.1862.
The bodies were reported removed to Andersonville National Cemetery in 1865-1868.



(A
Google search will find vast amounts of info regarding Shiloh & Ogelthorpe)

....The Ogelthorpe Prison Camp, in Macon.Co.GA is often confused in family histories with Andersonville on the Macon/Sumter.Co.GA line and were only 20 miles apart.
....Andersonville or Sumter Prison Camp was not built until 1864. 
....Ogelthorpe Prison Camp was used as a Confederate prison in 1862 and also in 1864 when it was reopened as a prison for Union officers.

From the above links: 
....In
1862, a prison pen, known as Oglethorpe 'Prison', was opened in Oglethorpe, Macon.Co.GA, being wedged between railroad tracks and the Ocmulgee River. 
....The site was enclosed by a rough stockade on fifteen to twenty acres (abt 800x800ft+ft).
....Nearly 1,000 prisoners arrived in May (from the Battle at Shiloh) to find several buildings within, including one large enough to use as a hospital.  
....The prisoners were a mixture of officers and enlisted men. Their living quarters consisted of sheds or stalls already on site or shelters constructed from materials found within the stockade.
....As a result of a formal exchange cartel agreed on by the combating powers, most of these prisoners gained their freedom, and by the beginning of 1863, Camp Oglethorpe was nearly abandoned.

....The breakdown of prisoner exchanges, combined with General Grant's pressure on Richmond, forced the Confederacy to reopen the facility as an officers' prison, moving most of the officers from Libby Prison.
....By the summer of 1864, more than 2,300 Union officers were housed there. Shelter was barely adequate, and rations consisted of beans, corn meal, and rice in meager amounts.
 
....T
he lack of sanitation, coupled with a dwindling diet, led to the usual litany of such diseases as chronic dysentery and scurvy. An official death total for the prison is unknown.....Most of the (surviving) prisoners were moved from the Macon facility by late July 1864 to the coast, Charleston, SC or Savannah, Georgia, because of Union cavalry raids in the general vicinity, although some officers were held there until September.

Do not trust as totally valid any tree/report data.  Often World Connect or Ancestry trees/data were utilized as a foundation upon which to add material gleamed from obits, articles, histories, biographies, stories, burials, censuses and other data collected.  My primary interest is generally the pioneer history and includes linking village and neighborhood surnames together for several of the early generations.  Family connections, locations and other data may have to be speculated in order to continue a complex series of inter-related projects.  My web pages are primarily personal study projects for note keeping, but can also jump start others.  I have a huge number of projects started and rarely return to edit/update material unless interest is rekindled.  Any web pages online are usually linked off the 'Index Page.'  Numerous projects are not put on web pages but are in draft form or in the form of photo albums on the 'Photo Hosting Site.'   I may have material for research use in storage, plus will/can upload other people's material if appropriate.
