We spent the better part of two days exploring this site and making use of the visitor's center. If you like history, in particular the Civil War this is a great place to visit.

This is something every American should do, even if you must go out of your way to do so. This is American history reflecting American vs. American battling each other. The numbers of dead on both sides is amazing. Current citizenry could learn from this...More

If you know Civil War history you could take days . . . But realistically I'd guess about four hours. Make sure you visit the Visitors Center first. Watch the video as an overview.

There are three hotels within 9 miles or less of the park. Just Google motels close to Shiloh park Tn. It is not a problem to find lodging.
