If you're in the area, you should visit both the park and cemetery. It's a great telling of a terrible time in our nation's history, and with all things they do, the NPS takes great care of this place.

If you visit Shiloh, you really must complete the visit by visiting the National Cemetery. I have found relatives and neighbors I never knew were interred there. It really makes you stop and think how others have sacrificed to keep us free!

Worth walking through and looking at the head stones. Helps to remind one how many lives were lost in the battle. Well Kept.

You can drive through it, but take the time to get out and read the history. Stop at the visitors center and get a map and there is a short movie about the battle at Shiloh.

If you like old graveyards, it is really neat. Shiloh church is next to it which is also pretty cool.
