“No soldier who took part in the two day’s engagement at Shiloh ever spoiled for a fight again,” recalled one Union veteran. “We wanted a square, stand-up fight [and] got all we wanted of it.”

Besides preserving the site of the bloody April 1862 battle in Tennessee, the park commemorates the subsequent siege, battle, and occupation of the key railroad junction at nearby Corinth, Mississippi.

Shiloh National Cemetery was established in 1866. In that year, the War Department removed the Federal bodies from the battlefield and placed them in the cemetery. Today, around 4,000 military veterans lay in the quiet and secluded location on the banks of the Tennessee River.

Shiloh National Military Park is open every day except Christmas Day from dawn until dusk. The park visitor center and bookstore are open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
