Welcome to Shiloh Guide Services
This is the former home page of Ken Hansgen. Ken was a tremendous human being with a deep and abiding love of Shiloh. He was always willing to share his knowledge and passion for this park with those who were fortunate enough to come into contact with him. The interpretation of this battle is weakened with his death, and we are all the lesser for it.
With Ken's passing, one of Ken's colleagues and fellow guides, Greg Williams, is now hosting the website. His biographical information is as follows:
Greg first visited Shiloh National Military Park at the age of five, and has been fascinated with the battle that unfolded on the banks of the Tennessee ever since. Greg holds a B.S. in History from Union University, a M.A. in History from the University of Memphis, and an M.Ed. from Freed-Hardeman University. Greg has taught collegiately since 1998, and has been published in the West Tennessee Historical Society Papers and contributed to The Hardin County Historian. Greg has created historical interpretive designs that have been sold at Wilsons Creek National Battlefield, Brices Crossroads, Shiloh National Military Park, Carter House Museum, Fort Morgan, and other historical sites. Furthermore, Greg had the opportunity to serve as a production assistant in the 2001 film Manassas by Wide Awake Films, and has been a board member of the Tennessee River Museum. He is currently completing a ten year research project on the Confederate casualties of Shiloh, which will soon be published. Greg has been providing tours since 1998 for The Mississippi Queen, The Delta Queen, the American Queen, the River Explorer, school groups, universities, and private individuals.
