Shiloh Battlefield Seeking Volunteers for Park Day 2018

SHILOH - On Saturday, March 31, Shiloh National Military Park will host National Park Day 2018 at Shiloh Battlefield, sponsored by the Civil War Trust.

Volunteers are asked to bring work gloves, and to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions. Necessary tools and drinking water will be provided.
