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.

The facility seems rather new. It's free, includes a film if you want to watch that, and a number of nice exhibits.
