My only complaint is the poor signage on the roads for the self drive tour. The map at times didn't seem to be coordinated very well with the roads. I found it difficult to find the first mass Confederate grave site. Luckily, I had a...More

I only live 8 miles away, so I have visited many times. From school field trips to afternoon hikes the park offers a special atmosphere. I never leave disappointed!

This is an absolute beautiful park full of history. I enjoy walking the many trails. I was able to attend the candle light tour earlier this year which was amazing.

Great historic site with an informative app. But the cell service is bad and wifi is very slow. Couldn't download while there. We followed the informative pamphlet all around. Very interesting history. Be sure to catch the movie!

Drove Memphis to Nashville via this historic, hallowed ground. I love history, but had also just finished Ronald White's wonderful biography of Ulysses Grant, in which Shiloh figures prominently. The Welcome Center film is wonderful. Glad we visited.

We started our tour of Shiloh with the film in the Visitor's Center and then drove through the battlefield in what was pretty much a driving rain, unfortunately. As the day went on, the weather cleared up, and we walked the 1.1 mile loop trail...More

The Shiloh Battle was an important one. The Union was camped outside Shiloh wanting for additional troops. They were then going to move south to fight for control of two major railroad lines. But the Confederates discovered them and attacked. The Confederates advanced the first...More

There are three hotels within 9 miles or less of the park. Just Google motels close to Shiloh park Tn. It is not a problem to find lodging.

Shiloh is quite a distance from both of those cities, and I'm not aware of any tours that only go to Shiloh. There are special tours of Civil War battlefields located in Tennessee but they aren't restricted to just Shiloh... More

The park will be open on July 4th. The Park website advertises a demonstration of cannon firing at 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:30 pm.
