This was a sobering experience. Seeing all of the union graves was very emotional. I am from Illinois, and the state gave many of its young men to that battle to promote the blessings of liberty to all of the citizens of this great country.

This is a very beautiful and peaceful area. You can pay your respects and see who all gave their life for this country. Located in the cemetery is Grant's Headquarters as well. The map located at the front helps find certain states, but other than that is not very helpful.

very large, and very fitting to the dead of Shiloh. I can't really say much because you have to be there to see it, and then maybe you can describe it

The cemetery itself is calm and beautiful. Take the time to read all the plaques. A great learning experience for any age!

A truly wonderful honor and tribute to the fallen at The Battle of Shiloh. Very nice and somber walk through the cemetery - it really takes you back to that time.

The cemetery is very near to the visitors center and you should take the time to experience this as you are visiting the battlefield site.

I was stunned by the very high percentage of "unknown" graves. Most are from the battle, while others are Civil War era graves from other battles.

This National Cemetary is not far from The Shiloh Battlefield welcome center. You will find graves from soldiers, and their spouses, of wars other than the Civil War.

Toward the back end, on the right,... More

The cemetery is within the national military park and overlooks the Pittsburgh Landing. A peaceful place, well maintained with thousands of graves. Some are just stone markers with no names, others have the names of the poor soldiers - so young. The grounds are beautifully kept and give you a great opportunity for sombre reflection.
