Shiloh

Part One

We started out with a plan for adventure and received way more than we had bargained for.

Our first stop was in the visitor center located on the battlefield of the Shiloh National Military Park. The rain was sprinkling a little as we made our way into the center to watch the interpretive film, Shiloh – Fiery Trial. The award winning film is about 49 minutes long and tells the story of the Battle of Shiloh. The battlefield is located in southwestern Tennessee. Over a two day period, from April 6th to April 7th in the year 1862, troops collided in one of the fiercest battles ever fought on American soil. Over 23,000 souls were lost as a result of this two day battle.
