We didn't have a lot of time and will return here. We did two of the ranger presentations and both were very informative and engaging. I liked the way the rangers included the kids that were there to keep them interested. The auto tour looked well laid out but we didn't get to do that. The grounds are well maintained... More

The Park Service does a great job at Shiloh with their informative and friendly rangers as well as the nice visitor's center. The movie about Shiloh is very good as it describes the battle by weaving in stories of actual participants.

If you have seen Memphis and need a nearby day-trip, Shiloh is about 2 hrs east and worth the drive. This pivotal battle of the Civil War is well-explained by the movie at the visitor center and by re-enactments on site. I came as a small child, but returned now as an adult looking for the monument where family members... More

I took a side trip while on business in Memphis to see this historic site and bloody battlefield where so many courageous men fought and died to preserve our Union.

My son and I took both the self guided driving tour and also stopped on one of the tour sites and listened to one of the park rangers describe the battle at that particular site. He was so detailed and truly knew the history of the battle of Shiloh. The park is well maintained and quite beautiful, a very peaceful... More

Located North of Corinth Ms. just over the Tennessee border Shiloh National Battlefield has not changed since the Civil War. When you enter the park normal time stops and silence prevails. Stop at the visitor center to watch the movie and get the rangers schedule of events. You can buy a cd and take the car tour or just follow... More

You can purchase the audio tour, and it would help for remembering later, but we took the self tour, and it was easy. this park is much easier to follow than Gettysburg, where the audio tour is much more worthwhile. Contained in a much smaller area, it is doable in 1-2 hrs. Many nice monuments, with good signboards. Can easily... More

Be sure to see the video in the Visitor Center about the battle first, it will help you understand the driving tour. We spent a little more than 3 hours driving the tour and stopping at the various stops. The map from the Visitor Center was very good in explaining the different parts of the park and the battle. Short... More

I'm so glad we finally visited here. The park is beautiful with a 13 mile tour. There are monuments and information at many tour stops. It was very moving and emotional. We learned many things we hadn't known before. If you can, you really should visit here.
