Congress established Shiloh National Military Park on December 27, 1894 to commemorate the April 6-7, 1862 battle that raged around Shiloh Church and Pittsburg Landing. Producing more than 23,000 casualties, the battle was the largest engagement in the Mississippi Valley campaign during the Civil War. Originally under the War Department, Shiloh National Military Park was transferred to the National Park Service in the Department of the Interior in 1933. Currently, the park has over 4,200 acres. The Corinth Battlefield Unit encompass roughly 240 acres with potential for a total of 800 acres. For more information, click on the following links:

Indian Mound

Shiloh National Military Park contains within its boundaries an almost pristine set of Indian Mounds. Although not significant in terms of the battle, the mounds complex (a National Historic Landmark in and of itself) contains a fascinating and important history in its own right.
