Shiloh National Military Park is pleased to announce our 2022 Kids Christmas Program. This year the program will take place at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center, in Corinth, Mississippi, on Sunday, December 4, 2022, at 2:00 PM.
Join Ranger Laura Lee McKellips and learn about the letters that Civil War soldiers sent home during Christmas time. Every year the kids make an ornament that they can take home to show their families, but this year we are changing it up.
This year the kids will make Christmas Cards for sailors who are deployed on the USS Shiloh which is currently based in Yokosuka, Japan. The USS Shiloh (CG-67) is a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser of the United States Navy, named in remembrance of the Battle of Shiloh and has a compliment of 30 officers and 300 enlisted personnel. The park will mail out the letters the following week.
The program is for kids of all ages and no registration is required. Participants should just show up and make a card for our service members overseas.
