...how much Civil War history is in the Shiloh area, as well as Corinth. We spent a few hours between the two and learned a lot about the battles that were fought there and the enormous number of dead and wounded that resulted. The park itself is very well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly. There were some reenactments... More

Tragic that 23,000 Americans perished on those battlefields. 45 minute film explains the time-line of battle. If it doesn't bring a tear to your eyes, you may not have a heart. No matter where you were raised it still hurts after all these years. Driving tour, 17 stops, 13 miles, about 2 hours.

We enjoyed and learned much from the museum and film. These films really bring to life what the war must have been like. Seeing the all the markers in the National cemetery brings to life the amount of blood and treasure spent. We did not stop to look at all the monuments but the drive was very nice.

This is extremely interest for those who like history and the Civil War. The firing of the musket provided lots of information unknown to me about the foot soldier and how he lived and fought.

I went here on a Saturday and the weather was pretty nice. When driving the tour, just follow the tour arrows (you may want to explore a different road, but the tour does get to all the places). If you can, read up on as much information as possible about the battle before you get there and plan on lots... More

Enjoyed visiting this park with our 16 year old grandson who is a Civil War enthusiast. We went to the visitors center first, watched the short, well done movie at the Center, then went to the bookstore across the road and purchased the CD tour. We found the CD very well done, but a little frustrating because of the numbering... More

Shiloh National Military Park is a delightful place to visit. The grounds are well kept and the self guided car tour takes you to many battle sites, the states repr3esented at each site have Monuments, the sites are well marked with plaques and it is worth your while to leave your car and read them. The park center has clean... More

We have been to several other battlefields and we agreed that this one was the most interesting. It is larger than most and has impressive statuary and monuments. Take a minute to sit quietly and hear the silence. Pay respects at the Confederate burial trenches and the Union Cemetery. Visit the log Shiloh Church and walk inside. We walked the... More

Suggested is to go to the visitors center first, before taking the driving tour of the 5,000 acres of battlefield. Ranger-led tours, programs and demonstrations are, likewise, available. Within the grounds is the Shiloh National Cemetery, where the graves of 4,000 soldiers are buried. Initially, the dead of both armies were buried across the battlefield. The U. S. dead were... More

The young man who told us about Grant's Last Line was outstanding. In fact, all of the employees were helpful and knowledgeable.
