Road Trip To Shiloh Military Park

For years it’s been a dream of mine to take a road trip to Southwest Tennessee to visit the Shiloh battlefield with my dad. Several years ago we got the opportunity to visit Gettysburg, so this was a nice addition to our travels. Highly recommended, Larry DeBerry from Shiloh Tours was an outstanding host and a wealth of information on our tour of the park. In addition to being a guide, Larry owns and operates his own museum that features a treasure trove of amazing displays any military history enthusiast would appreciate.
