We visited Shilo National Park and we went to the cemetery. A lot of history pry and sadness of the countless death from both sides I that period of the Civil War. We had to go and pay our respects to all those who parishes.

This is certainly a lovely place to visit and reflect. It's very quiet and well-maintained. It's a beautiful tribute to the men who gave their lives for what they believed in.

Right above the river is the.cemetery. Most of the graves have a marker with a number, some a stone say US soldier. So many buried and so many unknown. Sad and brave.

I was at the park a few years ago but just being in the area brings this horrific time in the U.S.A. To mind. This is a historic place to visit and worth the time; just know it is so sad. We cannot erase this era but we can try to prevent such in the future.

The cemetery is adjacent to the battlefield and overlooks the river. It is very peaceful and not as large as other battlefield cemeteries. No confederates are buried here. They are all in mass graves in trenches in the battlefield.

If you are a history buff, this place is very rich with history. I recommend that everyone that is in this area or visiting this area gets a chance to visit this location along with many of the other Civil War areas. Every man, woman and child should have an understanding of what this country has endured to be come... More

The cemetery is beautifully kept and serves well to remind visitors that the people who gave their lives at Shiloh (and other battles) for either cause should be respected and honoured.

When you learn how many people died in the battles of Shiloh, you can't help but be humbled by walking on the very same ground where thousands gave their lives. The cemetery is well kept and provides a nice walkway to Pittsburgh Landing. Going down to the landing will require a walk back uphill, but its worth it.
