Learn more about Battle of Shiloh Anniversary.
On the first week of April each year, Shiloh hosts demonstrations, hikes, bike rides and a spectacular illumination. Plus, every 5th year a Reenactment is held — 2017 is the 155th anniversary so yes this year!
The "Grand Illumination" is held at the Shiloh National Military Park. Luminaries are placed around the battlefield representing the 23,746 casualties of the terrible fight.
