All the suffering, death and injuries are brought out at this battlefield which is beautifully preserved. The driving tour is an interesting look at the battle. It consists of 3 overlapping loops through the battlefield and gives an educational look at the confusing nature of the battle. Be sure to go through the visitor center and watch the video too....

When visiting Shiloh, start off at the Visitor Center. There they show a 45 minute movie on the battle and what all took place here. 45 minutes may sound long, however it is very well done and even the kids in the audience stayed transfixed on the movie. The driving tour is very well done and the park is very... More

I could have spent all day here but I was limited in time, and only stayed 3 hours. My god, all of the memorial stones, with over one hundred cannons spread across the fields, the dedication to the 2 generals that died here, and the Hornet's Nest. Jeff Shaara book "A Blaze of Glory" made Shiloh come to life, to... More

Take the day to walk the museum, and tour the outside. The history of the battle is worth it alone. Spend a whole day and never spend a penny! I posted tons a pics on my instagram dvrvtour

The National Park Service has an excellent Visitor Center, with an excellent film that puts the battle in context with the rest of the Civil War, as well as details of the battle itself and an interesting little museum. You need to start there first. Then there are at least two options. One is a self-led driving tour around the... More

We have been to many National Parks and Battlefields. Shiloh is among the best preserved of all the battlefields we have visited. The site is easy to navigate and, although the Visitor Center was under construction at the time of our visit, the staff was courteous and helpful. As a result of budget cuts, some interpretive signage could use attention... More

Shiloh Military Park was an great adventure. I had always wanted to visit, and had the opportunity in October 2014. We took the self-guided tour, which took about 2.5 hours. The video at the Visitors' center was excellent. I even bought a copy to use in my classroom. The video helped us to visualize the places on the tour. I... More

First you must watch the film, to better understand what you will see at the park, unless you have done a lot of research earlier. the driving tour of the park is 12 miles long and take 2 plus hours. note no restrooms on tour. The monuments and information tell of the hug sacrifices both sides made in this battle.... More

The people there are very welcoming and the park was extremely well maintained. The welcome center had a very informative video that have various storylines to help with understanding. The park was very well labeled and even a bald eagle nesting. A great visit, might be a little much for younger children (on the amount of casualties) Other than that... More

It was pretty much what I had expected. Uniforms, weapons, pictures & of course written history. It brought tears to my eyes To think of brother fighting brother & countryman against countryman!; however, it is a part of our history.
