Shiloh Indian Mounds Site

Shiloh Indian Mounds Site

It's unusual to think that on an old historic site in rural West Tennessee contains an even older historic site, but that's what we have here.

The site is located near the Tennessee River in Hardin County. Archaeologists believe indigenous people used the mound as a burial site from around 1000-1450 AD. Later on, the Civil War Battle of Shiloh took place in and around the Archaeological Site.

The Shiloh Indian Mounds Site has been labelled a National Historic Site independent of the Shiloh National Military Park. For more info: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiloh_Indian_Mounds_Site
