I echo some of the other comments, sobering, saddening but we must not forget or diminish the history of our past and of the South. If you just drive through and read a couple of the monuments, plan on about an hour and a half. If you want to soak up the history, plan on much more time. Very well... More

I had been here 20 years ago and I wanted to return and spend more time. Start at the park center and watch the movie. It's quite informative. Then drive around and stop at each site marked on the park map. There are numerous monuments throughout the park and many informative placards. By the end of the afternoon, we had... More

It's really hard to write a review of this place. It was quite moving and at times emotional. I cannot imagine the horrors this place must have seen. I'm very glad we stopped to spend the day here. It was more than worth the time and drive from Athens, AL. I would highly recommend this. It's a must see!

If you have an interest in the Civil war, try and budget a day, od nearly a day to tour Shiloh. We only had a few hours and it wasn't enough. First, it's a fair way from anywhere else on a tourist route, but it's worth the travel. When you get there, head to the visitor centre and watch the... More

Our step-on guide Paul Holloway, an interpretive ranger with wide and deep knowledge of the Battle of Shiloh, made our tour of the Shiloh battlefield very special with his expert narration. I have visited over 200 National Park System units (including several trips to Shiloh), and this was one of the best tours ever. I was very impressed with Ranger... More

We hired a guide and felt we learned so much more than having to follow a trail guide. Louie was very personal and informative. He suggested places on the trail to revisit on our own and learn more indepth about.

Incredibly moving. Very educational. Helpful volunteer staff who answered our questions clearly. The rows of gravestones are a powerful sight

this park is now free with no admission charge. They will give you a map of the battlefield that is well marked with information about each of the about 20 stops. The roads are readily marked so you can follow the map. There is a museum at the visitor center and a gift shop across the parking lot. I believe... More

During our trip to Tennessee, in addition to Graceland and Nashville, we wanted to visit some Civil War site. Shiloh was no disappointment. The grounds are pristine. Be sure to watch the video provided in the Museum first. Using the map provided follow the path to all the sites of historic events ending at the Tennessee River. The trail covers... More

I rated the Battlefield Museum by mistake. I was able to attend on Memorial Day and was part of the Memorial Day Observance held in the Auditorium instead of the National Cemetery due to rain. It was well done with lots of participation by local elementary school students. I also went to the Confederate Memorial Service that honors the of... More
