Shiloh National Military Park Reviews & Ratings
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.
This is a very well kept battlefield and cemetery. The visitors center is very nice. The monuments are numerous. You could spend all day reading all the historical markers. Shiloh is a great piece of American history and well worth the trip.
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!
The Battle of Shiloh was a wake up call for the North and the South The number of casualties was appalling. Grant nearly lost his reputation. The Hornets' Nest and the Bloody Pond will never be forgotten. We got lost looking for the park and asked some locals for directions. Everyone we talked to acted like they didn't know where it was. It was a Union "victory"; and the locals consider themselves confederates. There is a nice visitors' center. You can watch a half hour movie if you are not familiar with the battle. Learn about the Lexington and the Tyler, two little gunboats that kept the Johnies in check after their success in the first day. You can drive through this extensive park, with ample places to stop and check out monuments. This is an absolutely beautiful park with an eerie vibe. Early in the morning I walked the path along what had been the front at the Hornets' nest. It was foggy and I was the only human there. As I stood there I could feel every hair on my body stand up. I realized this is where Iowan troops repulsed attack after attack until they were blasted from their position by cannon fire. Later as I stood near the Bloody Pond, I was filled with a near overwhelming dread. It is a beautiful place with a horrible history. There are ghosts there.
Super place to see and learn about a time that was very important to all. The things the men went through are truly amazing! Must see
