Take a trip to the past at the nation’s most well-preserved battlefield, Shiloh National Military Park. Start your trip at the park’s visitor center, which displays an impressive collection of Civil War era relics and narratives. Be sure to watch the center’s orientation film, pick up a Tennessee River Museum admission waiver, and check out the well-stocked bookstore. Afterward, enjoy a 13-mile self-guided tour around the park’s 5,000+ acres complete with over 150 monuments, 200 cannons, and 650 historic tablets. The park is also home to one other treasure worth visiting, a nesting pair of bald eagles.
