I have been lucky enough to visit several battlefields and this one is clearly one of the best to visit. The grounds are beautiful and you can see most of the battlefield from your car but you have several options to get out and do mostly short walks to get a little more detail. The auto tour zig zags all... More

Absolutely amazing site that covers the entire battlefield. The views at the water are outstanding. The major points of the battle are well marked and great to visit along the tour and the movie at the visitor center is award winning.

Because of the battlefield's remote location, it's been largely untouched since the battle over 150 years ago. The auto route (20 stops along the way) was interesting and helped me understand the scale of the battle and visualize how it unfolded. In addition to countless monuments, I found the following items of particular interest: Albert Sidney Johnson's death site, the... More

It's well worth a trip from the Interstate to visit this National Military Park. Start at the Visitor Center and view the film as it gives you an excellent perspective about the importance of this Civil War site. If you have time for nothing else, walk out to the cemetery and get the "feel" of this place and the thousands... More

This was an amazing experience. I hadn't really cared much about seeing it but it was something important to my husband. I was shocked at how much I "enjoyed" the experience though I hesitate to use that word in association with the amount of death and destruction that occurred here. It's HUGE! over 5000 acres but some of the most... More

Stopped by on way to Destin. Another stop for our 3 sons national park passports. They really enjoyed it very informative and got see a park ranger fire a muzzle loader gun, was very neat. Spent a few hours there could really spend more but had get moving on to Destin.

As with so many national military parks this is well maintained and well staffed. There is an accompanying film of outstanding quality on the battle. The museum is also well presented and quite fascinating to students of the Civil War. Sobering is the view across the landing cemetery at the Tennessee River and seeing how large the river is that...

The roads leading to the park are well-marked so that you have no trouble finding your way to Shiloh. Starting at the nice visitor center, a very good movie is shown (free) every hour that describes the battle in an understandable way. Then you can take the automobile tour of the park which includes all of the key places you... More

This is one of the best Civil War Battlefields to visit, as it is not near any large towns that tend to over commercialize battlefields. It is serene in the countryside like Antietam, and not overcrowded like Gettysburg. The battlefield is very well presented with an informative driving tour,or you can ride a bike on the paved roads, or hike... More

Shiloh is very well maintained and the park rangers were very helpful. Bought the CD tour and loved it. Took us about 3 hrs to drive through the park and walk the Indian trail within the battlefield. Highly recommend watching the 30 minute film at the visitor's center. It gives you a much better understanding of the events.
