I have visited Shiloh several times, as a young child and now as an adult taking my own children to learn about a critical battle in the war that to some degree defines who we are as a nation today. Shiloh is easy to get to and is very well run. The park center has a many artifacts and interactive... More

I spent a wonderful day here last spring with my father and my 11 year old daughter. The entire area has been amazingly well maintained and the National Park Service has done a great job of marking and memorializing the battle without losing the sense of history. This will be a great stop for folks who already know a lot... More

Very nice park. It was very cold, inspire if the freezing temperatures we were able to do the car tour. You can purchase a cd and it goes through the whole park with very vivid information. We loved it! Friendly park rangers and very clean and serene place to visit.

Shiloh National Military Park and National Cemetary has been well preserved and provides a wonderful opportunity to understand one of the most horrific battles of the Civil War. Start your visit at the main visitors building, look through the museum displays, and then see the movie presentation of the battle. While in the museum pay special attention to the artillery...

Give yourself 4 hours to see this park. There is an hour movie, then a driving tour of several miles with 20 stops. We raced through and it was 3.5 hours. The park is very well maintained and the driving tour very interesting. You can walk in the woods and fields and imagine what it was like during the 3... More

For any Civil War history buff, this is a must see. A very important, bloody battle was fought here. The film at the visitor's center is outstanding. Really gives you a good feel for what happened for a couple of day period. The park is 5,000 acres with nice roads and the visitor's map gives good detail. The markers at... More

A hard-fought pivotal battle of the Civil War that established that the conflict would be a long and bloody one. As there has been no urban encroachment, the park is very well preserved. Of particular interest to me were the mass graves of Confederates where I suspect that some of my own kin lie.

I've visited this park three times over the years, and always enjoy the experience. I usually drive around, and then do short walks around to look at the monuments and cannon. The visitor center/museum is nice with interesting exhibits. This is going to sound silly, but in my mind it's what a battlefield "should" look like. You can spend an... More

I definitely recommend this park for those that enjoy history. There is a visitor center and bookstore and they give you information for the battlefield tour which you can either drive like I did or hike. You can spend a better part of a day checking everything out.
