Probably couldn't be done, with attendant environmental and safety concerns, but having an 1862-style transport ship {stern- or side-wheel} moored at river's edge or a man-made cove nearby might be an interesting accent to a Shiloh visit.

Could Shiloh be considered one of the earliest joint operations in the ACW? Were the transports part of the USN or just privately hired or abruptly commandeered riverboats?

P.S.--Beautiful national cemetery, too!
