Shiloh Park has remembrance day on 9-11

Shiloh National Military Park is conducting a day of remembrance on Saturday, Sept. 11.
Visitors to Shiloh Battlefield and the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center can join park rangers in placing American flags on the front lawns the visitors centers, honoring those killed in the terror attacks of 9-11.
Almost 3,000 people were killed on Sept. 11, 2001, a tragic day, which remains the single largest terrorist attack on American soil. In addition to those United States citizens and military personnel lost, more than 90 other countries had citizens perish in the attacks.
“On this, the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks, it is appropriate that we take time to reflect on the events of that day and those who perished. We invite everyone to come to the park and place a flag in solemn remembrance,” said Superintendent Allen Etheridge.
Flags will be provided by the park and available at the front desk of both visitor centers from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
