Tactical maneuvers displayed at Shiloh

Volunteer re-enactors will gather in force at Shiloh National Military Park today and Sunday to mark the 148th anniversary of the Civil War battle. Instead of depicting two opposing lines of fire, choreographed tactical scenarios will demonstrate authentic field maneuvers interpreting how each combat branch of army service would have operated separately and combined.

Programs on the role of naval operations during the Civil War also will be presented daily on the lawn adjacent to the Shiloh battlefield Visitor Center. Living historians will interpret the experiences of the sailors, their duties both on shore and on water, and their critical role in the military actions and events that shaped how the war was fought.
