Nice earthwork, helps tell the story of Corinth during the war. A little out of the way, in a small grove of trees. If you love earthworks, as I do go visit. If you are expecting earthworks like Petersburg you may be disappointed. I would recommend asking at the Interpretive Center about some other properties.

Located in a residential neighborhood on the west side of town on the corner of Davis Drive and Bitner Road, Battery F is the best preserved of six artillery redoubts the Union built as outer defenses after capturing Corinth in the spring of 1862. The site consists of two interpretive signs in the middle of a large field with the remaining earthworks located in a wooded area behind a split rail fence. In the autumn of 1862, the Confederates attached the Federals occupying Corinth hoping to recapture the city and it strategic railroad crossing. While the attack eventually failed, the Confederates were able to flank Battery F on October 3, the first day of the battle, causing the Union troop to flee, abandoning their five guns, and retreat to the inner defenses around Battery Robinett.

It is hard to find, and the markers are in the middle of an open field. But the earthworks lie beyond in some mature woods and are in good condition. The best original earthworks from the Corinth battlefield.

The location where this Battery was is now just a large field inside a subdivision. There are a few informative story boards but nothing much beyond that.
