Shiloh off the beaten path: Original 16th Wisconsin burial site

In woods, about 40 yards off Eastern Corinth Road at Shiloh (Tenn.) National Military Park, raised blue letters on a marker atop a Federal blue-painted pole jar a first-time visitor to the site: “Burial Place 16th Wisconsin Infantry. Bodies removed to Nat’l Cemetery.” Immediately in front of the marker is a depression in the ground, about 10 yards long, probably remains of a trench where some of the Badger State soldiers were first interred.
