Minnesota lost more men in this action than any other in the state’s history. Shy’s Hill Park is open all year long from sun-up to sundown. It requires a steep 10 minute hike to the top from Benton Smith Road off Harding Place. The tour has links to other expanded tours of the Battle of Nashville and the Nashville National Cemetery as noted by the small white floating globe icons in the panorama.
There are links in the virtual reality tour to others, including:
- the grave site of Colonel William M. Shy.
- the Minnesota State Capitol
- expanded tour of The Battle of Nashville
Note: get the full screen experience by clicking the icon in the lower left of the video frame. A zoom option is available also for reading the historical signage. Some markers are embedded in the floating icons.
