The battle of Shiloh was America's bloodiest battle to that date. Two days of intensive fighting are remarkably told and experienced on this tour of one of the best preserved battlefields in the National Park Service. Any understanding of this nation should include the knowledge you will gain by understanding the battle that altered the course of a war and changed the trajectory of American history.
On April 6 and 7, 1862 over 100, 000 Confederate and Union troops slammed into each other at this unlikely venue. Both North and South expected this confrontation to ultimately decide the Civil War and bring about its hasty conclusion. What ultimately happened could not have been farther from those hopes. The Battle of Shiloh stunned the nation and ushered in a horrifying reality that the conflict would be long, very bloody as well as heartbreaking to all Americans.
