While at the battlefield make sure to stop by the cemetery to pay your respect and really put the battle into real perspective! So many lives lost. Not all bodies even known and graves with only numbers no names. Cemetery very well maintained.

We took in the Cemetery late in the evening after the Park was closed. We were surprised to find photographers waiting for darkness to photograph owls. The Cemetery is well preserved and honors the Union Side of the Civil War and two Confederate Soldiers who died from their wounds in the Battles. Well maintained and properly honors the fallen soldiers.

After visiting the Battlefield, my husband and I visited the Shiloh National Cemetery where the bodies of the Union soldiers were relocated for burial. Many have unkown soldier inscribed and most have just a small white marker with a number inscribed on the top of it.

To stand at the entrance of this cemetery and gaze across the field at the markers gives one a sense of sorrow. Sorrow that so many had to die on both sides of this war. The first grave we saw was of a young drummer boy. I believe he was 10 years old. It brings tears to my eyes. The... More

Visited on a beautiful, very warm day and found myself tearful at the site. A somber yet beautifully kept place for many. Being a parent of a current US Marine, my heart was touched at the reminder that life is sacred.

You have to be humbled by all the men who died for our Country. It is a peaceful setting with large trees. A place I'm sure anyone would approve of as a final resting place.
