Bloody Shiloh...

"No soldier who took part in the two day's engagement at Shiloh ever spoiled for a fight again," recalled one Union veteran. "We wanted a square, stand-up fight [and] got all we wanted of it." Besides preserving the site of the bloody April 1862 battle in Tennessee, the park commemorates the subsequent siege, battle, and occupation of the key railroad junction at nearby Corinth, Mississippi. - NPS
