  8. Epic Hike 2018 Suggestions

    You are absolutely right...one has NOT hike Shiloh unless they have crossed Dill Branch..if there is some water..brownie points!!because until you've done this one can not really ascertain what the soldiers had to traverse through in the battle action.the tour road gives the visitor the total different idea of the ground that was involved throughout both days of fighting..

  12. Epic Hike 2018 Suggestions

    if those that wish to traverse Dill Creek ravine...it can be made available to those that havent done it yet...i do beleive the most of us have more than several times...but folloeing a unit would be good...kind of like how we retraced the steps of Prentiss" men in April..with Bjorn.That was a good hike.

  15. Wisconsin photos vis-à-vis Shiloh

    yes its good to have friends in high places...got the main historian to open up and give me a tour! it was great!until he mentioned they had just taken down all their Shiloh displays(i asked him would he put it all out again if i gave him a heads up if i every return)it is worth going up there also go on to the capital and then jim can take you to the cemetery where the confederates are buried..but the monument will be gone...it has fallen prey to "pc". did get to see the cannon captured at Shiloh!
