Battlefield Monument
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.

  • One of our finest national military parks. Well maintained. Well marked. Well marked and maintained trails. Great deer watching. Great eagle watching. Driving tour is excellent.
  • My boyfriend and I just loved it there.. my children weren't very happy, but they were young and don't understand the great and sad things that happened there, but one day they will be able to say Hey i remember going there and maybe take there own children someday.. 😊
  • Love to hike here in the winter and early spring. There is such solemn beauty at every turn. The visitors shop is well stocked with relevant books and trinkets for kids. The park staff are easy to talk to and knowledgeable.
  • Incredible photos and great experience in learning more about our history. I hope to visit in the spring 2017
