My wife and I found this to be an interesting description of the Civil War in Corinth. There were quite a few pictures from that time of the area. Like other Civil War locations, the slaughter is unsettling.

Worth the visit and good to top at with people if all ages. A 30 minute stop here is sufficient for most people.

The Interpretive Center in Corinth MS is a treasure trove of artifacts, memorabilia and we were lucky enough to visit on a weekend when an actual reenactment was taking place. Amazing.

The oddly-named Interpretive Center is the main resource in Corinth that explains the two Civil War battles that were fought over this key strategic rail hub. Development has eliminated most traces of the original battlefields, but the Interpretive Center provides a nice video, maps and...More
