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

Civil War buff or not, this is inspiring, peaceful and well kept. Stop and take it in. The movie was very informative.

Shiloh is a great place to visit if you are a Civil War buff. Two suggestions: watch the movie first, then do the self drive tour and get something to eat in town, nothing nearby. Also the map is a little off between stops 4 and 5 and the signs are small and could be easily missed.

I came because my great x3 grandfather fought at Shiloh and I wanted to see it. I was amazed by the beauty of the area. The park rangers were amazing and very knowledgeable. The video was quite informative. I was very glad that I came.

The movie was excellent in giving one an idea of what happened in two days. Very beautiful area. Everyone touring the park was reverent. Important part of the nation's history but just so sad.

This site is a bit remote from population centers. The visitor can experience what the area looked like in 1862 during the battle. The visitors center was being renovated when I was there. The well marked tour route takes you through the park with commentary at various points along the route. I didn't tour the Indian mounds. That will need... More

I spent a whole day watching the movie that tells what happened here during the Civil War; I also drove through the whole national military park and it was a gruesome battle that too many soldiers lost their lives. Great experience! I would definitely go back.

Definitely a place I intend to revisit! Beautiful, full of history...just wish I'd had several more hours to picnic, walk the trails...and of course, watch the bald eagles!!! Hope to go back in a couple of months to watch as they work on their nest and prepare for nesting! It's located near the river, and if you enjoy watching them,... More

We didn't have enough time, spent 2 hours and didn't see but a small portion. Next visit will plan a day and pack a lunch. The Indian mounds are amazing and everyone needs to walk the trail from the monument to the mounds, so much info along the trail. Wonderful educational experience, and can't wait to go back.

Please bring a picnic for your visit. Visit the Visitor center first. We spent 4 hours at the park and 5 hours probably would have been perfect. They will be closed for the winter shortly. Business out of the way, the park is deeply moving. Are battles held in beautiful places or does the history make them so special? I... More
