Ken,

Yes, Shiloh is very well preserved, due in no small part to its relative isolation. So this grant money is really wonderful news, as it will help ensure a continuation of that, and keep the ever dreaded encroachment monster at bay.

Shiloh does have a large number of markers and monuments. I've seen some folks say that they think it actually has too many monuments, but I guess that's a matter of opinion. But it's very well marked. I think Tom and Nita could address all that better than me, but if you visit the Shiloh site on CivilWarAlbum.com, you can get a sense of the monumentation around the park from the pictures. Here's a link -

Just use the picture index on the left side of the screen.

Also the NPS site for Shiloh has some excellent information, along with some photographs -

Hope you have a chance to visit someday. It's a beautiful park. In fact, I've sometimes told folks that Shiloh is a lot like Gettysburg, only without the town. And the crowds. :)
