We visited Shiloh NMP while traveling through Tennessee. The park is beautiful and well-kept. The visitor center provides a movie which is very well done and informative. The monuments are gorgeous and bring to mind the lives lost during the battle. History buffs will enjoy the drive through tour.

Very peaceful battlefield, and not very crowded. You have to want to come here, because it's not close to any major cities, or interstates. Beautiful setting with deer, and wildlife. Many beautiful monuments, and the national cemetery. Worth the visit. If you love history you won't be disappointed.

It's hard to believe so many lives were lost here. If you have never visited a Civil War battlefield, Shiloh is the one. Be ready to spend the day to learn all the battlefield has to share. The battlefield is filled with beautiful statuary and is extremely well marked.

This park is on the Tennessee river with a cemetery, museum and book/souvenir shop. You can walk around or take a driving tour. Museum has films and exhibits to see. There are many monuments around park. It's beautifully kept. They often have special events going on with reenactments. If you are driving by, it's definitely worth a stop!

My husband and I love going to Civil War battlefields and are both Civil War buffs. On our first trip to Shiloh, we found it to be unspoiled, and beautifully preserved. It was not commercial like some of the big battlefields - if you're looking for close by shopping and restaurants, this isn't the place for you. The battlefield is... More

Out of the way but worth it. Lots of beautiful monuments and informative signs. I loved how the signs told where each unit was on which day and what was happening.

One of the most important and hallowed sites in America. It's a Civil War battle that last two days with fighting over the same ground on both days. The heaviest casualties up to that time occurred at Shiloh, and it was probably not until Shiloh that Americans, north and south, realized what a death struggle the war would be. The... More

I LOVE history. But I am NOT a military history buff (I don't know where the 15th Texas regiment was at on the 9th of July 1864). When I have thought of the Battle of Shiloh, I thought it was an open field - North on one side, South on the other and they fought. Shiloh is NOT that!!!! It... More

Awesome....and heart wrenching all at the same time. To walk/drive through these peaceful grounds and imagine the carnage that took place here April 6-7, 1862...it is sobering. After taking in the movie in the visitor center, along with the displays, you come out with an idea of the happenings of those 2 days, and the significance of that battle. Being... More
