Growing up, the word “Shiloh” evoked “Johnny Shiloh”, Boy Soldier of the Civil War; maybe a Disney show. “Shiloh” also had a Biblical reference, but until I became a board-gamer years later, I had little idea about the 1862 Battle of Shiloh. But even after...More

A very special place to visit. It is one of a very few National civil war parks that has not been altered by new business or residences. In fact you need to stay in Corinith Mississippi as there are no facilities in this area. There...More

One would have to be made of stone to not feel a surge of emotion driving into any of the Civil War National Military Parks. Shiloh is no exception. At the time of the battle (April 1862) there was a little church located in the...More

Another great battlefield to see but it's a very big area. It will take a while day to see and read all the plaques at each stop on the map. There are 20 stops to look at and get the history of the battle.

If you know Civil War history you could take days . . . But realistically I'd guess about four hours. Make sure you visit the Visitors Center first. Watch the video as an overview.
