Summary
"A great controversy surrounds General Lew Wallace at the Battle of Shiloh. General U.S. Grant blamed Wallace for the huge number of casualties the Union suffered. Wallace was obsessed with these accusations his entire life and wrote Ben-Hur as much to work through the injustice of being a scapegoat as for literary aspirations."--Provided by publisher
