This National Cemetery is easy to visit because it is located near both the Visitor's Center and the Gift Shop. It is on high ground overlooking Pittsburgh Landing which was so crucial to the battle. If possible, attend a Ranger narrated walk. The cemetery contains only Federal soldiers (with two exceptions) for two reasons. First it was felt at the... More

It was easy for me to visit the Shiloh National Cemetery when I was at Shiloh National Park because the cemetery is located adjacent to the park visitor center/bookstore complex. Entering through the rather ornate gate, I found the cemetery almost eerily quiet. The few other people present were respectfully silent or talking in hushed voices. We were all very... More

After completing a tour of the battlefield, we stopped in at the bookstore and then walked into the cemetery. We wandered around for about a half hour.

The cemetery is part of the Shiloh Battlefield Tour. Interesting how the Union soldiers were properly buried but Confederate soldiers were dumped into mass graves.

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!
