image On Sunday morning, April 6, 1862, roughly 100,000 troops clashed in the fields and woods near Pittsburg Landing in the first major battle in the American Civil War's western theater. Two days later, U.S. Grant blunts the Confederate attack, pushing the Southerners back to their base.

Today, on more than 5,000 acres overlooking the Tennessee River, America’s best preserved battlefield features 151 monuments, over 200 cannons, and more than 450 historic tablets.

Shiloh gave General U.S. Grant his sternest test, and witnessed the death of General Albert Sidney Johnston, the highest ranking American ever killed in combat.

A 12.7 mile self-guided driving tour begins at the Visitors Center, which features a 49 minute orientation film which starts on the hour beginning at 8 a.m. During the summer, park rangers present interpretive programs throughout the day.
