Talley has a little verse called "As I Went to Shiloh;" probably no bearing but may remind someone of more about "Shiloh."
As I went down to Shiloh town,
I rolled my barrel of Sogrum down.
Den 'lasses rolled; An' de hoops dey bust,
An' blowed dis Nigger clear to Thundergust!
(p. 11, Negro Folk Rhymes, Thomas W.)
