Shiloh Indian Mounds
There bodies were later reinterred in the National Cemetery. Thanks to its early inclusion in the military park, the site of this ancient town was never plowed. Spend some time looking at the exhibits in the shelter and take the 1.1 mile (1.8-km) interpretive loop trail though the grounds and back to the parking lot.
The effigy pipe and exhibits about Shiloh people may be viewed at the Tennessee River Museum nearby Savannah, Tennessee.
