It is a vast space with a driving tour and map that really brings into perspective what the Civil War soldiers actually went through. The staff here is amazing. Don't forget to earn your Junior...

Another well preserved sight with battlefields, Cemetary, beautiful views and lots of history. There is a good museum and movie, gift shop and park officials. The main museum is at Corinth for the area.

Shiloh National Military Park contains both Shiloh and Corinth battlefields. 24,000 soldiers were either killed, wounded or missing during the 2 day battle. Today it is a rather large park that is beautiful to drive through but also includes monuments to the various troops from different states. The cemetery within the park is also worth seeing, if for no other... More

Did the driving tour at Shiloh last week, I would recommend highly for anyone with interest in Civil War history, or US history in general. The staff was very helpful and the battlefield is preserved very well. The only negative is that the audio tour they sell does not correspond with the driving tour on the map you get at... More

A wonderful National Park that is well maintained. Lots of information in Museum, especially the movie redone in last 5 or 6 years of the Battle of Shiloh. Markers at important sites give you information also. This is a Must Visit for all Civil War Buffs.

The park set up and map I would rate a 3 for being very confusing to get to the monuments, but the park itself is absolutely gut wrenching to think how many men fought and died there in the most horrific battle. Make sure you go to the museum FIRST and watch the video before you go through the park...it... More

Shiloh National Military Park is the third Civil War National Historic Battlefield we have visited this summer...Gettysburg & Chickamauga being the other two. Shiloh will not disappoint anyone wishing to visit. The visitor's center is great. There is a 20-25 minute film about the battle that took place here. The driving tour, found in the park brochure, is easy to... More

Shiloh isn't just for civil war enthusiasts. The film at the visitors center is very good. I always start with the film. The driving tour is well laid out. It's a full day but worth it. I took the ranger led talk to the landing then walked the cemetery. I recommend this park to anyone who wants to get outside... More
