Meet at the trailhead at about 9:45am.  We plan to leave the trailhead at 10:15.  We ask that you e-mail Charlie Bright for registration at  charlie.bright2010@gmail.com.

Shiloh National Military Park historical hike - Saturday, April 25

This hike will be led by Charlie Spearman, interpretive ranger at  Shiloh.  We will retrace the steps of Albert Sidney Johnston's Army of the Mississippi on April 6, 1862, during the battle of Shiloh.  Charlie will follow General Johnston's route as the Confederate troops force the retreat of General Grant's troops during the day.  Charlie's recount of the day's events weaves military history with all manner of external forces and personal triumph and tragedy.

Charlie Spearman suggests that a group size no more than 25 is preferred.  Charlie Bright will handle registration.

We will probably hike about seven miles.  Some of it will be cross country and is a fun hike added to great story telling.  We will meet at the visitor center at time to be determined. 

We ask that you e-mail Charlie Bright for registration and ride sharing.  charlie.bright2010@gmail.com
