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 the 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.

We intended to bike this park but a thunderstorm changed our plans. It is a great place for the history geek or simply to learn about the history of the greatest country on the planet. Park rangers and staff were great, outgoing, and welcoming. You will leave this park contemplating the sacrifices made on the altar of freedom.
We had a phenomenal time. Enjoyed talks by Hal and Shelby. Well-staffed park. Clean, well-marked, and easy to navigate. Quaint bookstore, and the movie in the visitor center cannot be missed! Thank you, Shiloh!
