“A wonderful place”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Shiloh was the scene of a major Civil War battle and today it is a place of reverance for that battle, and one of the few places where you can actually get some sense of how burtal the Civil War was. Shiloh is a beautiful place, with graves (including mass graves) almost everywhere. You can still dig musket ball from the trees in the park (althought that is frowned upon). Shiloh is a beautiful place with a message of how terrible war can be.

“Peaceful view”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The cemetary is right next to the visitor center and bookstore. The monuments are well preserved. The cemetary is well kept. When you walk to the back of the cemetary there is a beautiful view of the Tennessee River and Pittsburg Landing.

“Really nice!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We had a wonderful time driving through this Military park. It has so much history. It was clean and well kept. There are a lot of places where you can get out and take walks on trails. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend a visit.
