In commemoration of the 151st anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, Shiloh National Military Park near Savannah will be offering special historical hikes, evening ranger programs and living history demonstrations through Monday.
These hikes and programs will give visitors a deeper understanding of the experiences of both northern and southern soldiers during the bloody Battle of Shiloh and throughout the Civil War.
“We are excited to be offering these special events on the actual dates of the battle 151 years later,” said superintendent John Bundy.
Exhibits and demonstrations on Naval Operations during the Civil War and 19th century wet-plate photography will take place in front of the Visitor Center on Saturday and Sunday.
