The cemetery is a beautiful and poignant site overlooking Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River. Paths meander around the cemetery and the grave markers. It is a place to remember the painful cost of war.

This national cemetery is beautiful and well kept. I suggest taking a few minutes to walk the path. Just absorb the calm that now surrounds this place. I would have liked more information about the buildings nearby. A few buildings lie inside the cemetery walls...More

This is one of the best civil war parks in the country. They have a 20 min film of the battle and self guided tour of the battle field.

We visited Shilo National Park and we went to the cemetery. A lot of history pry and sadness of the countless death from both sides I that period of the Civil War. We had to go and pay our respects to all those who parishes.

This is certainly a lovely place to visit and reflect. It's very quiet and well-maintained. It's a beautiful tribute to the men who gave their lives for what they believed in.

Right above the river is the.cemetery. Most of the graves have a marker with a number, some a stone say US soldier. So many buried and so many unknown. Sad and brave.

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
