“Preserving the American Civil War Shiloh and Corinth battlefields.”
Shiloh National Military Park contains a wide array of historic sites. In addition to the battlefield of Shiloh itself, the park contains a separate unit at Corinth, Mississippi, that preserves and interprets the Siege and Battle of Corinth. Located within the boundaries of Shiloh Battlefield is also a United States National Cemetery, which contains around 4,000 soldiers and their family members. A National Historic Landmark in its own right, the Shiloh Indian Mounds are also located with the park boundaries.
Great Park! - see the movie at the visitors center early to understand the battle, its import to the war, and the various sites around the park. I'm not a civil war buff and other battlefields are, honestly, just boring. This one however has a lot of monuments, great placards showing what happened where, and an excellent introductory movie. I'd love to learn more and go back again. That's saying a lot for a battlefield.
Great park and well marked. The whole site was overwhelming. Do not miss this stop.
The cemetery was breathtaking. Very friendly staff at the visitors center. Well worth the stop.
