I have visited several of the civil war battlefields. Shiloh is one of the most impressive. Gettysburg is so overdone with the monuments. At Shiloh it seemed like I could really connect more with the history of the place. As always, reading and researching the battles before visiting the area makes the experience so much richer

My friends and I visited Shiloh National Military Park on Veteran's Day, and the park was surprisingly empty, and it was amazing to pretty much have this historic site all to ourselves. First and foremost, I highly recommend a fall visit. The changing leaves were absolutely beautiful. We started our visit by viewing the 45 minute video. We missed the... More

We visited on a week day in September it has a small visitors centre but containers plenty of information. We found this battlefield tour well laid out with plenty of information at the stops.To fully enjoy this battlefield you need to get out and walk to some of the monuments that are a bit further from the road. The battlefield... More

Shiloh was a very important Civil War Battle in the Civil War. This National Battlefield is huge. There are 20 stops if you take the car tour. There are several monuments off the road that you can easily walk to if you have the time. YOU SHOULD MAKE TIME!!! This tour can use two days to see all the sites.... More

Civil War buff or not, this is inspiring, peaceful and well kept. Stop and take it in. The movie was very informative.

Shiloh is a great place to visit if you are a Civil War buff. Two suggestions: watch the movie first, then do the self drive tour and get something to eat in town, nothing nearby. Also the map is a little off between stops 4 and 5 and the signs are small and could be easily missed.

I came because my great x3 grandfather fought at Shiloh and I wanted to see it. I was amazed by the beauty of the area. The park rangers were amazing and very knowledgeable. The video was quite informative. I was very glad that I came.

The movie was excellent in giving one an idea of what happened in two days. Very beautiful area. Everyone touring the park was reverent. Important part of the nation's history but just so sad.

This site is a bit remote from population centers. The visitor can experience what the area looked like in 1862 during the battle. The visitors center was being renovated when I was there. The well marked tour route takes you through the park with commentary at various points along the route. I didn't tour the Indian mounds. That will need... More

I spent a whole day watching the movie that tells what happened here during the Civil War; I also drove through the whole national military park and it was a gruesome battle that too many soldiers lost their lives. Great experience! I would definitely go back.
