No more knows the Battle of Shiloh better than Stacy Allen—long-time Historian at Shiloh National Military Park—and no one relates the story of that pivotal battle in such an engaging and compelling fashion. As Chief Park Ranger at Shiloh today, Stacy's duties leave little time for full-scale tours, but we have secured his dedicated services for two, full-day outings to cover the battlefield (and environs) in detail. Don't miss this opportunity to take in one of America's most pristine and important military parks, and to gain a fuller understanding of an exceedingly complex battle in company with the nation's premier authority on Shiloh.
“Shiloh was the first battle on a scale that became commonplace during the next three years. The 20,000 killed and wounded at Shiloh (about equally distributed between the two sides) were nearly double the 12,000 battle casualties at Manassas, Wilson’s Creek, Fort Donelson, and Pea Ridge combined. . . . Before Shiloh, Grant had believed that one more Union victory would end the rebellion; now he ‘gave up all idea of saving the Union except by complete conquest.’ Shiloh launched the country onto the floodtide of total war.” —James McPherson, Battle Cry of Freedom
