Shiloh National Military Park, Shiloh, Tennessee

The Battle of Shiloh only lasted two days, beginning April 6, 1862, and was vital for controlling the railroad junction in Corinth, Mississippi. Although there was no actual winner of the battle, it was a failure for the Confederate army since Union forces captured Corinth after the fight. Here you can visit the battlefields as well as the United States National Cemetery.

Shiloh is also known for the Shiloh Indian Mounds. These rectangular mounds with flat tops would have been for important buildings. One round top pile was used for the burial of an important member of the tribe.
