The battle at Shiloh on April 6-7, 1862, produced more than 23,000 casualties in the Civil War. The park has over 4,200 acres and is host to a United States National Cemetery containing around 4,000 soldiers and their family members. The Shiloh Indian Mounds are also within the park boundaries, along with historical plaques and troop position markers throughout the park. A number of wildlife species have made the park their home, including deer, fox, coyotes, turkeys, hawks, bats, owls, songbirds and a pair of nesting bald eagles. The bordering Tennessee River also contains at least 50 species of fish.
