I have been to several battle sites around the country, and in my opinion, Shiloh NMP ranks up there with Gettysburg as far as the monuments and the placards explaining how the 2 day battle was fought. The film in the visitor center really laid...More

We visited this historical monument to pay homage to the brave young men who fought for their beliefs. The grounds are beautiful and with all the artillery on display and the monuments it really takes awhile to absorb everything. The movie is about 30 minutes...More

Shiloh NMP is a very well preserved battlefield. There is not major developments impeding on the peace and tranquility of the area, which makes it easy to imagine what the area sounded and looked like during the Civil War. Make sure to load up on...More

Good day activity for the family. Very educational with explanations/landmarks of events at different locations. Be prepared for the elements as it can be very warm. Demonstrations of cannons and weapons was awesome.

Shiloh is a very large battlefield, and has had the fortune to be able to incorporate a great portion of the area into the National Park boundaries, so it is very much today as it was in 1862... start at the visitor center and museum...More

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.
