The battle that occurred here caused more casualties to Americans than any previous war.
Located east of Memphis, this battlefield played a part in the American Civil War. An interpretive center nearby depicts the events of what happened at Shiloh. The center also shows a film called Shiloh: A Fiery Trial and keeps the stories of this historic place alive. Special events are often held from April to October, so check their website if you are interested in visiting during one of their public events.
Feel free to look around the Shiloh Battlefield Museum to learn details of the Civil War and see some of the weapons that were used on this battlefield. There is a 12.7-mile self-guided tour you can take via car that features 22 different stops along the way, including famous sites such as Hornet's Nest. This road is open from dawn to dusk. Visitors are welcome to bike or walk along the paved paths. If you bring a dog, it must remain leashed outside as you explore the park. Learn about the American Civil War at this military park the next time you're visiting Tennessee.
