Be sure to see Shiloh Military Park. It is exceptional: sitting right on the banks of the Tennessee River. The tour is easy to follow and don't miss visitor's center with a great mini movie about the battle of Shiloh. This park is definitely on the same scale as Vicksburg, Ms. or Gettysburg..

Great National Park and a must visit for any true Civil War buff. We went to one of the re- enactments and really enjoyed it. Truly a humbling and sad history but one that needs to be remembered. Two thumbs way up.

A must-see for history buffs, especially Civil War buffs. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the various sites well-marked and descriptive. The facilities are nice and the short pre-tour film (tour of battlefield is self-guided) is very informative and lays the groundwork for your experience. A nice place to take a family picnic as well. Located between Pickwick Dam and... More

As others have stated, Shiloh is definitely worth a stop. Watch the video at the visitor's center to start your visit, in order to become familiar with the battle and its importance. We purchased the driving tour on CD and also was a given a map. Unfortunately the CD was made first, and then the route through the park was... More

This park lets you really feel the gravity of the loss during this battle. Go to the visitors center first and get a map. Take your time. Plan at least a full day.

I have been to a few civil war cites and this one was a top. It's difficult to find a hotel within the area though. Recommend going and doing a tour. It's national park so if you have a national park passport you can get it stamped. Many things to do and can fill up a day easily.

After Lincoln's election in Nov 1860 through April of 1861 the southern states secede and Fort Sumter is bombarded. The confederacy controls the railroad junction in Corinth, MS. However in Feb 1862 the Union forces capture Forts Henry, Donelson, and also Nashville, TN. By March they hold Pittsburg Landing. The battles of Shiloh will take those innocent young men by... More

This is an amazing national park. Very peaceful. Be sure and see the Tennessee River Museum in nearby Savannah, TN. Hagy's Catfish is close-by also.

Largely because it is off the beaten path and not near an urban area, this is (argueably) the best preserved of all of the Civil War battlefields. Every effort has been made to return it to, and maintain it in, it's state at the time of the battle; up to and including what is planted in the fields. Haunting because... More
