In addition to dead from the Battle of Shiloh (April 6-7, 1862), Shiloh National Cemetery includes graves for Union dead from operations along the Tennessee River. In all, nearly 3,600 soldiers -- 2,359 unknown -- are buried in the cemetery on the Tennessee River bluff. A large marker denotes the site of Ulysses Grant's Shiloh headquarters within what became the cemetery grounds in 1866.
