Shiloh NMP

Established in 1984, Shiloh National Military Park is a 4,000-acre park, preserving the site of both Civil War Battles of Shiloh and Corinth. The park draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year for its historical significance.

Visitor Information 

You’ll find the park just south of Savannah in southwestern Tennessee – adjacent to the Tennessee River.

While Savannah is the nearest city, the unincorporated area of Shiloh neighbors the park.

The majority of the park is here in Shiloh, however, there is a small unit of the park – the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center – located in Corinth, Mississippi.

Both the Shiloh NMP Visitor Center and Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Moreover, both sections are free of admission.

Attractions & Activities 

Upon arrival at Shiloh NMP, you’ll want to first stop by the visitor center. Here, you’ll find out more information about the Battle of Shiloh – or what is known as the first major battle in the Western Theater of the Civil War.

Also at the visitor center, you’ll be invited to peruse the collection of exhibits and view the orientation films – both the award-winning film, Shiloh: Fiery Trial, and the newest film, Corinth: A Town Amidst War.

The easiest way to explore the vast park grounds is by embarking on the Audio Auto Tour – a 76-minute tour traversing the nearly 13-mile tour route. The tour has about 20 stops along the way, including the Peach Orchard, Albert Sidney Johnston Death Site, and the Hornet’s Nest.

If you’re looking to explore the park on your own accord, self-guided auto tours are also an option. Don’t miss the Confederate Memorial in the center of the park and the Shiloh Indian Mounds National Historic Landmark on the western banks of the Tennessee River. The latter can be explored more closely explore via the Shiloh Indian Mounds Interpretive Trail.

Your Civil War tour doesn’t end after your auto tour, however. Feel free to cross into Mississippi and stop by the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center and take a walking tour of Civil War Corinth, exploring Corinth Battlefield sites.

So whether you're planning a visiting for a few hours, or for an entire day, there is plenty of things to do and places to visit here at Shiloh NMP. But don't just take our word for it – pack your bags and visit today.
