The battle of Shiloh took place on April 6, 1862 and April 7, 1862. Confederate soldiers camp through the woods next to where the Union soldiers were camped at Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River. With 23,000 casualties this was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War up to this point.

Name Meaning

English (Essex): perhaps a variant of Hargest . Alternatively, an altered form of German or Frisian Harges, which is probably of the same origin as Frisian Harjes .

History: The (majority of the) American bearers of the surname Hargis trace their origin to George Hargis, who was transported from England to VA in 1642 and whose grandfather is believed by some to be Louis Harges, a Frenchman from Normandy, supposedly of Danish parentage. The surname Harges is not found neither in France nor in Denmark; it is, however, found in northern Germany, though it is very rare there.
