The events of the Battle of Shiloh are characterized by acts I of bravery, sacrifice and uncommon valor. After the Civil War, Northerners and Southerners alike were compelled by another sense of duty at Shiloh-the duty of remembrance. Established just over three decades after the battle ended, Shiloh National Park gave veteran groups from states across the country an opportunity to memorialize their regiments' specific contributions. Each monument, like the soldiers themselves, has a story to tell. A History & Guide to the Monuments of Shiloh National Park recounts the history of the park's creation and the monuments' construction. Join former Shiloh National Park interpreter and seasonal guide Stacy W. Reaves as she charts the paths through the park's grounds and traces its fascinating history. Book jacket.
