We spent an hour or so walking around the cemetery, reading some of the memorials, But mostly trying to absorb the human cost of this battle.

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.

There is a plot map and a directory, but since so many of the soldiers were buried in trenches, you might not be able to find the person you are looking for. You can go on the cemetery web site and use the app they offer to... More
