This is our second trip to the center, and both visits have been great. I have been researching two ancestors who fought at Shiloh. The rangers provided lots of great info about their military units, and we were able to use the research library to learn more on our own. The small museum is first-rate. It explains the importance of... More

A great museum with a wonderful outside monument dedicated to every battle from the war. The museum goes into detail the battle for the town and the Union occupation.

This is part of the Shiloh National Military Park & it explains the role Corinth played in the Civil War. The facilities are fairly new & there are some very interesting dispays there. It is a very long walk to get from the parking lot to the front door. We were there on a Sunday morning & were told by... More

The National Park Service has done an outstanding job with the Cicil War Interpretative Center in Corinth, MS. If you have any interest in this battle, start with a visit to this Center. It has several films and slide shows that provide a context for the battles in the vicinity of Corinth - Shiloh, the Siege of Corinth and the... More

My family and love history. Going to Corinth was an extension to our civil war history trips. It was very nice. The movie about the events rhat happened there was very well done and informative. I recommend this to anyone that loves to learn more about the Civil War.

The thought that was put into the creation of this center is simply overwheiming. Plan to spend at least two hours. From the moment you step out of your car you are met with the horror and the impact of this terrible war. The walkway leading to the center is"littered" with bronze replicas of what the soldiers left behind in... More

We had an excellent visit to the Civil War Interpretive Center. It is well done. The movies and displays takes you through the battles and effects of the war on the soldiers and the people of Corinth. We walked out of the center very emotional. The water sculpture at the center was also impressive. As we were getting into our... More

We toured all the sites in that part of the country looking for information on a specific Union Infantry Company from Wisconsin. Here, at this outstanding library are kept records of each unit and descriptions of the battles in which they fought. We were allowed to sit in the enclosed glass library and read the passages that pertained to our... More

This National Park Service site is a treasure. The entry is peppered with bronze bed rolls and a stunning relief of soldiers marching. The building contains artifacts and well presented film presentations placing the site in the broader context of the Civil War. What really set this site apart for us was the water feature court yard where the war... More
