I grew up around this area and it has so much to offer. It's a great place to ride bikes and picnic or to talk a nature walk. The visitors center also has great information.

The National Cemetery is located adjacent to the Shiloh National Battlefield Park and is within walking distance of the visitors' center. The Federal casualties from the battle of Shiloh are buried here, along with some from nearby areas and some modern burials. The cemetery overlooks the Tennessee River and it a very attractive burial site.

The paths are made for you to walk or bike or just drive aroung and look. The atmosphere and the feeling of the ideas that brothers fought against eachother for what they believed in.

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.

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.
