I recommend seeing the movie first in the visitor center. Then observe the objects in the museum (there are not that many, but they are quite interesting and really help to give additional insights into the civil war.) Next take the driving tour and use the map from the visitor center. The different stops are well marked, but pay careful... More

I am a writer and photographer for National Park Planner (npplan.com) and I visited Shiloh National Military Park in November 2014. Located in Shiloh, Tennessee, the park preserves the battlefield on which Union and Confederate forces fought a two day battle early in the Civil War on April 6-7, 1862. With huge losses on each side, the country realized that... More

Wonderful experience especially for history buffs. The film before the tour was excellent and well done! The battlefield was very well maintained! We had a private tour with Shiloh Tours which was fabulous! This is a must see historical site.

Watch the movie that is shown in the Visitors Center before you do the tour. It will help bring the different points that you stop at along the way alive.

Visiting Shiloh now, it is hard to believe that over 23,000 men were killed in one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. It is extremely beautiful and peaceful. There are hundreds of markers giving details of troop locations and details of the battles. Some markers are easily spotted from the road or trails, others are fairly deep in... More

The battlefield is a must-see for all Civil War aficionados. Watching the orientation film prior to going out to the battlefield was a good idea for us because my husband is NOT a huge Civil War buff (he has a growing appreciation though). The map we were given by the friendly employee was very helpful and following it allowed us... More

This is something every American should experience. The impact of the Civil War on America was only beginning when over 100,000 did battle with over 20,000 casualties on American soil, and it could have gone either way. You'll learn much. Movies shown in the visitor's center should be done first and really add the experience. The many monuments and signs... More

An eye opening reminder of the horrors of that monumental American war. We live in relative peace and security, this experience educated us to the reality that was the Civil War. It is on hallowed ground that too many men gave the ultimate sacrifice. Very respectfully done and very informative.

Shiloh is a beautiful, peaceful place to remember and learn new facts about one of the most important battles in the Civil War. Start at the visitors' center and take a guided tour and watch the movie - then take the driving tour to see the many well-marked places where the battle took place. Stop to see the remains of...

We arrived to the battlefield in the early afternoon to catch a national park service guided tour that left from the visitor center. Our NPS tour guide was absolutely amazing. We got stories of the battle itself, saw where on the battlefield the worst fighting happened (now a field), the stories of the families and generals, got to see where... More
