In fact, more men died in the battle of Shiloh then in all other American war conflicts up until that point, combined. When the Civil War began, most did not beleive the conflict would last long or result in much blood shed. Many believe it was the Battle of Shiloh that shocked Americans into the reality that the Civil War would continue at a much greater cost then anyone believed possible. The Battle of Shiloh was named for the small Shiloh Church which was located in the vicinity where so many men met their end. In Hebrew, Shiloh translates to "a place of peace". It is this juxtaposition of war and peace that resonates so loudly to us.

Also, you might be interested to know that 5% of each purchase here at Shiloh is donated to Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center in Yellow Spring Ohio. Glen Helen is a 1000 acre nature preserve located in Yellow Springs Ohio and is the home of an outdoor education center. This education center connects thousands of children each year to nature by offering a wide range of experiential learning opportunities right in the nature preserve! Experienced naturalists lead small trail groups on hikes through the preserve exposing children to forest ecology, local geology, local history, and much much more. The goal of the Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center is to plant the seeds of a lifelong interest in our environment and a lasting concern for its well-being.
