A Drive Through History

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

Our first visit to a Civil War battlefield site, as we are on holiday from the UK with limited knowledge of the American Civil War. The Park Rangers were very helpful, the displays extremely informative and the battlefields itself humbling with the thoughts of what took place during the battle. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

The battle of Shiloh in 1862 was the largest battle in the western theater of the war. Over 23,000 casualties from both sides fell in this area. Visit the visitor center first, then go to the national cemetery, and then take the driving tour. Allow yourselves at least 3 hours to check out everything. Veterans of any war will tell... More

As Shiloh battlefield is "off the beaten path," is was expecting to find a site with few visitors and minimal interpretation on the battlefield. The number of visitors was modest, and once you were out on the battlefield it was easy to find yourself alone. The auto tour includes about twenty stops, with interpretive material at each site. The battlefield... More

I like to visit historical battlefields as I've gotten older. Particularly those of the Civil War as we need to understand our history and past in order to not be foolish enough to repeat it. One cannot help but appreciate the courage, commitment, and carnage that it took to fight these battles. The lost of human souls was significant for... More

This piece of History is not taught in schools! Loved it so much that I will return several times to finish my curiosity and love of the place! The start of the downfall of the South! Simply Amazing!

We spent an entire Saturday touring this great battlefield. The movie must be watched before you tour..it provides such insight to all the places you see on your driving tour. Remember to bring a picnic lunch with you because there are some great places to sit and enjoy your lunch.

First, as expected, the NPS rangers were fantastic, very helpful friendly and courteous. She provided us with help in formulating a plan to see all we can see within the time frame we had to visit. First we took a guided tour down to the landing where the bad guys showed up and made camp. Thanks to Shannon from Iowa... More

I took my 3 sons on a history tour to the south and Shiloh was our final stop. It did not disappoint. It is a beautiful setting. I would recommend reading a good book or two before visiting. The movie in the visitors center is a great summary with dramatic reenactments. We hire Tom Rambeau a local retired expert on... More
