Join TSM Civil War curator Richard White for a tour of the Shiloh Battlefield on the 155th anniversary of the battle, Saturday, April 8, 2017. We’ll depart Nashville at 8 a.m. that morning on a chartered bus, and return that evening around 8 p.m. Wear comfortable shoes and come ready to walk! We will tour this legendary battlefield with stops at the Hornet’s Nest, Bloody Pond, and Grant’s Last Line, among others.

Congress established Shiloh National Military Park in 1894 to commemorate the April 1862 battle that raged around Shiloh Church and Pittsburg Landing. With more than 23,000 casualties, the battle was the largest engagement in the Mississippi Valley campaign during the Civil War. Shiloh National Military Park, operated by National Park Service, covers more than 4,200 acres.

The tour includes an early dinner at the Catfish Hotel in Savannah, TN. Following dinner, the tour will include a twilight ride through the battlefield to view 23,000 luminaries lit in honor of the casualties. 

Early bird price on or before March 23 is $55 per person (includes dinner). After March 23, the cost is $60 per person. Lunch is not included.
