Shiloh is a lovely Park, full of learning experiences for young and old alike. There are plenty of landmarks, statues, and cannons on display. If you're interested in the Civil War , this is the place to be. They even have reenactments of the different battles once or twice a year. Very educational, indeed!

No one will ever fully comprehend the terribleness of what happened at Shiloh or its part in the 600,000 lives lost in the War Between the States. But, the hallowed grounds of Shiloh host the ghostly memories of what President Lincoln's address so aptly summed up for those who gave the last full measure of devotion. It is all still... More

We used local guide Larry Deberry to take our family through Shiloh. Mr. Deberry kept our children entertained during the 2 hour tour. We hit all the highlights of the park, along some personal favorites of Mr. Deberry. I would strongly encourage a visit to the park include having a personal guide.

The park is huge. We only had a few hours but one could easily spend days there. The place is quiet and beautiful. I recommend starting with the visitor's center and watching the film first. It will give meaning to the rest of the park. The visitor's center was excellent. The driving tour was very good. I wish we had... More

Having grown up in the area, SNMP was something that just happened to be nearby. And being all about our national history, I never really appreciated history until I had some. With that being said, SNMP is a place that displays a war where brother fought against brother and the passion was off the chart for victory. History that is... More

After living in Tennessee for 20+ years, we finally visited Shiloh National Military Park. We regret waiting so long. The park is beautiful and peaceful, the antithesis of the battle it commemorates. The movie at the visitor center is a must see start to your visit. It will lay the foundation for driving around the park. The movie is very... More

I am glad that this battlefield is being preserved for future generation. I enjoyed the whole experience park. Starting the driving tour is confusing but once you find the beginning it all comes together.

Great Grand Father John Wesley Morse and his brothers Drury, Henry, Daniel all with the 2nd Texas and another brother William Dear Morse with the 8th Texas Calvary were all here. Henry later died at Grenada from the Measles. He was 18. My son and myself tracked their movements with the GPS setting (on the parks website) which gave us... More

I was here a couple of years ago on a road trip to the East Coast. On a whim I took the side roads to here. What I found was an absolute peach of place. In that it was a classic example of a 1930's W.P.A. Project to restore the Battlefield for the future generations. So here are a few... More

My husband and I toured the park and very much enjoyed the historical information, not to mention seeing the actual places of battle, and lovely monuments. We'd always heard about Shiloh, and were thrilled to tour the area. Free admission and a wonderful tour.
