Explore American Civil War history on the Shiloh and Corinth battlefields at Shiloh National Military Park. The two-day Battle of Shiloh on April 6-7, 1862, began a six-month struggle between Union soldiers and Confederates over a railroad junction in Corinth. This battlefield, named for the Shiloh Methodist Church, opened to the public as a park in 1894. The park was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966. Visit the museum and interpretive center to learn about the war tools used in this era. For further exploration of the park, pick up a narrated audio tour that provides highlights of the battlefield as you drive theĀ 20.4 km (12.7 mi) route. You can walk through the Shiloh Indian Mounds Site and view the Iowa Monument, Sunken Road, and Confederate Memorial.

  • Just incredibly well kept and protected grounds. Done with the greatest of care and with honor given to all who were there. Again not enough good can be said about this place and the folks that keep and guard it.
  • The way the creators of this park immerse you in the events is outstanding. The park is well maintained and a great place to learn. Some of the signs and facts have changed over the years though.
