Immensely moving

Incredibly moving. Very educational. Helpful volunteer staff who answered our questions clearly. The rows of gravestones are a powerful sight

this park is now free with no admission charge. They will give you a map of the battlefield that is well marked with information about each of the about 20 stops. The roads are readily marked so you can follow the map. There is a museum at the visitor center and a gift shop across the parking lot. I believe... More

During our trip to Tennessee, in addition to Graceland and Nashville, we wanted to visit some Civil War site. Shiloh was no disappointment. The grounds are pristine. Be sure to watch the video provided in the Museum first. Using the map provided follow the path to all the sites of historic events ending at the Tennessee River. The trail covers... More

I rated the Battlefield Museum by mistake. I was able to attend on Memorial Day and was part of the Memorial Day Observance held in the Auditorium instead of the National Cemetery due to rain. It was well done with lots of participation by local elementary school students. I also went to the Confederate Memorial Service that honors the of... More

On my way to meet up with friends at a nearby restaurant and with an hour to spare, i decided to visit the park for the first time. I am not a Civil War buff and did not know what to expect. I was pleasantl surprised. The park was beautiful; picturesque actually. It was easily accessible from Highway 22 and... More

I have to say I am not a Civil War aficionado, but do have a strong interest in history. And, I have visited other Civil War sites, but Shiloh is an amazing, humbling experience that ranks at the top and should be witnessed by everyone. I groaned a bit upon learning that the video in the Visitor Center is 45... More

The park can be visited as a day trip from either Memphis or Nashville, and you will be able to spend anywhere between a couple of hours and a full day in the park. The visitor center offers a small expo of uniforms, equipment, some key bio's, and a 45 min very well produced film about the battle. The film... More

This beautifully maintained and peaceful park tries to make the visitor forget the sounds and sights of the grizzly battle that was fought here. A battle that resulted in over 22,000 casualties. The driving tour makes it easy to see the numerous monuments that were erected here after the war. A particularly well-make documentary, using re-enactments as well as old... More

I have been to many Civil War Parks and sites. This is one of the best. I have never seen so many huge and beautiful monuments. The Shiloh Methodist Church for which the battle and thus the park and area was named still meets regularly in the park. Two presidents fought in this battle as well as other famous Civil... More

We are slowly marking off battlefield sites on our bucket list and you will be impressed at the fact that the entire battlefield is undisturbed by the likes of subdivisions or strip malls, most certainly due to its rural location. We don't visit battlefields without the services of a guide. Shiloh doesn't have its own guides but you can call... More
