Welcome to Shiloh Tours and Museum

Experience Civil War History at Shiloh National Military Park

Our Shiloh battlefield tours take you to the sites of an epic struggle during the early years of the Civil War (1861-65). Your experienced tour guide, Larry DeBerry has lived in Shiloh all his life and walked the battlefield hundreds of times. His great-great-grandfather (who helped build the log church in 1851) was a victim of a stray bullet on the first day of the fight and the only civilian killed in the battle. A lifetime student of the Battle of Shiloh, and an authentic Civil War re-enactor, Larry helps you uncover history with interesting discussions about each side’s successes and failures as well as the impact of the war between the states.

Quick Facts:

  • Set in the western theater of the Civil War (1861-65), nearly 110,000 Union and Confederate soldiers clashed in a bloody contest around Shiloh Church and Pittsburg Landing.
  • Deemed the largest engagement in the Mississippi Valley, the two-day struggle between the Union forces and rebels on April 6 and 7, 1862 resulted in more than 23,000 casualties.
  • Retrace the steps of the two armies: from General Albert Sidney Johnston’s (Confederate) surprise attack on General Ulysses S. Grant's troops stationed around the log church to the bitter fighting that raged across Shiloh Hill, the Peach Orchard, Water Oaks Pond, Hornet's Nest, Grant’s Last Line and finally ending at Pittsburg Landing.
  • Established in December 27, 1894, Shiloh National Military Park is one of the best preserved Civil War battlefields in America.
  • The largest display of artifacts and relics at the Shiloh Tours’ Civil War Museum pays homage to the brave soldiers and is a grim reminder of the effects of war.

“I would just like to say what a joy it was to go with Larry on a history tour of the Shiloh National Battlefield. Larry is informed in every aspect of the battle”
