 And it is not just popular with the locals. Hundreds of copies of the video are sold every year out of the park bookstore. If you are interested in an updated film start your Shiloh visit at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. We have a brand new film that plays on seven plasma screens in a circular theatre. And there are no shirtless guys in slacks manning the artillery.
So the 1956 video IS sold in your bookstore? The park ranger I talked to must not be informed, as when I suggested that they should put it on tape to sell, she said that that's probably a good idea. (Either that or she was yanking my chain. She didn't laugh when I asked her if the soldiers had used the monuments as cover during the battle. She'd probably heard that one before.

BTW, if there is a new video at Corinth, why do they not show it at Shiloh Military Park as well? Are they giving the state of Mississippi some "kickbacks" for sending everyone down there? :)
