National cemetery which includes many numbered graves of unknown casualties of the battle. Veterans of 20th Century conflicts are also buried here, some next to their wives. Not much in the way of monuments, aside from the headstones. Overlooks the Tennessee River at Pittsburg Landing.

A monument to bravery, a testimony to pyrrhic victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat. Marble tombstones remember sacrifices of honor and pride. Sobering, frighteningly inspiring, the only response that rightly fits is silence. This is...More

The Shiloh National Cemetery is right on the battlefield grounds. It's fairly small, but the sheer number of graves, particularly the ones that are marked "Unknown Soldier" are particularly moving. There are many, many unknown soldiers here.

Many, many graves marked as unknown soldiers. My friends and I didn't realize just how many soldiers were buried here.

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...More

There is a plot map and a directory, but since so many of the soldiers were buried in trenches, you might not be able to find the person you are looking for. You can go on the cemetery web site and use the app they offer to... More
