If I recall correctly, I read a few years back that Shiloh, along with Gettysburg and Antietam, was one of the three best preserved Civil War battlefields. Having already visited the other two, I figured I would visit Shiloh or probably regret it later. The battlefield is heavily wooded, interspersed with very large open fields where much of the fighting... More

I brought my 8 yo cub scout here for a 2 mile hike. The weather was perfect and we had a fantastic time exploring the park. We ended up doing the auto tour and cometing the junior ranger book while there. Next time, we'll come on a reenactment weekend and bring our bikes! Loved it!

The National Park is very well kept. There is something for everyone to see. The staff is very helpful and friendly. There is a very good drive around the park with well marked signs. The map is very good at pointing out all the markers and signs.

I continue to be amazed at the great job our National Park Service is doing to preserve, restore, document and teach about the sites that have national historical significance. When you visit Shiloh, make your first stop at the visitors center and be sure to see the 20 minute documentary film. It is absolutely the best introduction film to a... More

What a wonderful tribute to the worst battle in the Civil War. Lots of information at the visitor center, and a great tour (walking or driving). There is so much to see, do and learn. It's difficult to fathom the carnage and destruction, but seeing those fields of battle, strategies and understanding the players in the battle really brought it... More

We visited on a beautiful Fall day and were greeted with a somber and quiet beauty. I agree with other reviewers who suggest taking the time to get out of your car and walk around. This gives you an opportunity to really reflect on the history that took place in the area. Be sure to take in the movie at... More

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
