Is there a real Shiloh, West Virginia?
I’ve read all four of the Shiloh books. Is there a real place called Shiloh, West Virginia?
Yes, there is. It’s a small community, and the last time I visited, there was just a simple little road sign to tell a traveler that he was entering Shiloh. If you were to stop at the small post office in the town of Friendly, West Virginia, the postmaster could tell you how to get up there. The old Shiloh school house is gone, but you would see Middle Island Creek, and the bridge that Shiloh didn’t want to cross again.
