Lucy’s Tales ~ Shiloh National Military Park

Shiloh was on the last leg of our six-week road trip and in my mom’s home state of Tennessee.  By the time we got to Shiloh, I had learned all the proper etiquette for touring a cemetery.   It was hot, muggy and overcast!

The Battle of Shiloh is listed as the 6th bloodiest battle in the U.S. Civil War…
 
“Between April 6-7, 1862, the Battle of Shiloh raged in Tennessee. Approximately 23,746 men died. Of those, 13,047 were Union soldiers. While there were more Union than Confederate casualties, the battle did result in a tactical victory for the North.”  [National Park Service – Shiloh website]
 
Historical Fact –  “The Confederate army commander, General Albert Sidney Johnston, was killed at Shiloh on April 6, 1862. In all of American history, he is the highest-ranking American military officer ever to be killed in action.” [National Park Service – Shiloh website]

This is me in front of a line of cannons at Shiloh National Military Park.
