I have never been to Shiloh, but have heard that it is in pristine condition and (best of all) is not commercialized in the least. Go if you get the chance.

I have been to a lot of other battlefields in both the eastern and western theatres and I am sure that you want to visit a major battlefield. If you have already visited Gettysburg and are heading east, I would recommend Fredericksburg.  While there you can visit not only Fredericksburg, but also the Wilderness, Chancellorsville, and Spotsylvania. You can also visit where Stonewall Jackson died at Guinea Station. For me, Spotsylvania was a special place and had somewhat of an eery sense when I visited it very early in the morning.

If you are heading west, Chickamauga/Chattanooga National Military Park is great.  Lookout Mountain is very breathtaking. And if you are that close, travel on down to Kennesaw Mountain which is not too far away.

But if I was young enough, I would get my mom and dad to take me to Shiloh. Happy traveling.
