Other Shilohs

I live at Shiloh, Samaria, Israel.

Here, most probably, Yaakov fought a battle in retreat against Shchemites. Here Joshua divided out the tribal portions of the Land of Israel. Here the Tabernacle was erected. Here Samuel the Prophet was inducted to the prophetic ministry.

But what about the other Shilohs?

Here are a few references I found while stumbling through some search engines for something else entirely:-

Shiloh, Illinois -- The Place to Be!
People who live and work in the Village of Shiloh know the simple pleasures of small-town life and at the same time enjoy all the benefits of a thriving metropolis. Located on the crest of a picturesque, unspoiled valley, Shiloh is encircled by several larger neighbors, including Belleville, Fairview Heights, O'Fallon, and Scott Air Force Base. Within the surrounding towns are numerous shopping centers, as well as the largest mall in Southern Illinois.

Shiloh National Military Park was established in 1894 to preserve the scene of the first major battle in the Western theater of the Civil War. The two-day battle, April 6 and 7, 1862, involved about 65,000 Union and 44,000 Confederate troops. This battle resulted in nearly 24,000 killed, wounded, and missing. It proved to be a decisive victory for the federal forces when they advanced on and seized control of the Confederate railway system at Corinth, Mississippi. The battlefield contains about 4,000 acres at Shiloh and an interpretive center at Corinth, Mississippi.

The Shiloh Project is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Fairfax County, Virginia and is a participating member of the Combined Federal Campaign and the United Way of the National Capital Area.
Our Mission: Teaching juvenile offenders and youth at-risk Compassion, Respect and Responsibility toward animals and others through the experience of socializing and interacting with rescued homeless dogs, Promoting the adoption of homeless companion animals and Encouraging healthy and positive human/animal bonds.

Any more out there?
