    If ever there’s a luminaria display near you, don’t miss it. We attended the anniversary events at Shiloh in April and thoroughly enjoyed their luminaria display. A candle for each of the 24.000 casualties. By the way, it’s a crazy great park. In the middle of nowhere, but awesome NPS folks and battlefield guides. We were there 6 days, could do it in two.
