Shiloh National Military Park was established in 1894 to preserve the scene
of the first major battle in the Western theater of the Civil War. The
two-day battle, April 6 and 7, 1862, involved about 65,000 Union and 44,000
Confederate troops. This battle resulted in nearly 24,000 killed, wounded,
and missing. It proved to be a decisive victory for the federal forces when
they advanced on and seized control of the Confederate railway system at
Corinth, Mississippi. The battlefield contains about 4,000 acres and has
within its boundaries the Shiloh National Cemetery along with the well
preserved prehistoric Indian mounds that are listed as a historic landmark.
The park is located in Hardin County, on the west bank of the Tennessee
River, and about nine miles south of Savannah, Tennessee.
