Shiloh National Military Park is pleased to announce our 2023 Kids Christmas Program. This year the program will take place at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center on Sunday, December 3, 2023, at 2:00 PM.
Join Ranger Laura Lee McKellips to learn more about the letters that Civil War soldiers sent home during Christmas time. The kids (and their parents) will then write their own Christmas Cards to be sent to the sailors on the USS Eisenhower (CVN 69) that is currently on deployment to the U.S. European Command area of responsibility. The park will mail out the letters the following week.
There is no age limit and no registration for our Kids Christmas Program, just show up and make a card.
To register your children or if you have questions, please contact the Corinth Interpretive Center at 662-287-9273.
