Luminaries light the Confederate Memorial during the Sesquicentennial

SHILOH – Shiloh National Military Park is seeking volunteers for the 2017 Battlefield Illumination. On April 8th, twenty-four thousand luminaries will be lit in memory of the fallen soldiers of the Battle of Shiloh. Volunteers are needed to help prepare the luminaries in the weeks leading up to the anniversary of the battle.
Volunteers will assemble luminaries by folding the bags, filling them with sand, and placing candles inside. The volunteer events will be held on park grounds every Saturday beginning February 18 through March 25. Two opportunities are available each Saturday: 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. All group sizes are appreciated, from large groups to individual volunteers.
To volunteer please call the Visitor Center at (731) 689-5696.
