The cemetery is next to the Shiloh battlefield visitor center and is worth taking the time to walk through. The Civil War was so many years ago, that it is important for us to remember that this was the most costly of wars, that the USA was involved in. The numerous unknown graves are staggering, as are the numbers of... More

I've wanted to come here for a long time to find a family members grave. We met a very helpful ranger when we arrived. I gave him the information, and he walked us to Andrew Murray's grave. It was very moving to be there by his, and so many others graves. The ranger spent quite a while with us talking... More

If you are in Shiloh National Military Park, please take time to walk through this beautifully maintained cemetery. Stroll along the river and truly visit the past as you see names of soldiers who died here, and many tombs of unknown soldiers. This is like time travel to the past.

Great National Park and a must visit for any true Civil War buff. We went to one of the re- enactments and really enjoyed it. Truly a humbling and sad history but one that needs to be remembered. History remembered.

The national cemetery is part of the battlefield grounds. Definitely worth walking around to understand the magnitude of the battle and to pay your respects to all the men who lost their lives there.

When visiting Shiloh Battlefield I encourage anyone to take the time for visiting the Shiloh National Cemetery also. It's located in the same area as the visitor center and a fitting way to either start or end your day at Shiloh, These men gave their lives in defense of our nation and walking along the graves is a time to...

If you have but one day at Shiloh and Corinth you will be challenged to do it all between Corinth and the National Military Park. If the choice is between the Cemetery and Corinth Interpretative Center, leave time for Corinth. I recommend this as a brief stop unless you have family who served and died here.

When visiting Shiloh Battlefield be sure you don't miss the National Cemetery. Very well maintained and a quiet, peaceful place where so many men in blue are laid to rest. Nice view of the river from this location as well.

This was our first visit to Shiloh and we heartily agree that it was well worth the trip. The movie in the visitor's center is very informative, giving you a better idea of how the battle raged on those two days. Heading out, stop at the Gift shop and don't miss the National cemetery. On the day we went, they... More
