Battlefield Guides
The legendary Ed Bearss and the leading Shiloh battlefield expert, Tim Smith are scheduled to lead this tour.

In the Spring of 1862, Union forces engaged Confederate troops in a series of campaigns waged for control of Kentucky and western Tennessee. At stake were a number of critical waterways and rail lines that led to the heartland of the South. This tour provides an in-depth look at the Battle of Shiloh (April 6-7, 1862). With five times the casualties of First Manassas, Shiloh was the bloodiest battle in United States history up to that time. We will also examine the Battle of Corinth.


Wednesday – April 20, 2016 / October 26, 2016
8:00 pm Gather for an orientation and lecture by Tim Smith at the Inn at Pickwick Landing.

Thursday – April 21, 2016 / October 27, 2016
In an attempt to destroy the Western Union offensive once and for all, Confederate forces – under Albert Sydney Johnston – attacked Grant’s Army camped near Shiloh Church. We will walk the hallowed ground of Fraley’s Field, the Peach Orchard, Bloody Pond and the Hornets’ Nest.

Friday – April 22, 2016 / October 28, 2016
The Confederates achieved considerable success on the first day of the battle, but as we’ll learn today, they were ultimately defeated on Day 2. We will tour Pittsburg Landing, Grant’s Last Line and Water Oaks Pond. This crushing defeat ended Confederate hopes of blocking the Union advance into northern Mississippi.

Saturday – April 23, 2016 / October 29, 2016
Following the Battle of Shiloh, the Confederate army fell back to Corinth. We’ll trace their route and visit sites associated with the siege of Corinth on October 3-4, 1862 and the Battle of the Hatchee. The tour ends back at Pickwick Landing at approximately 4:30 pm.
