Campaign of 1862- Driving Tour of Corinth Campaign

501 West Linden Street, Corinth, MS 38834, USA  | More on: Corinth »

An estimated 300,000 soldiers from both sides passed through Corinth during the war. The town played host to more than 200 Confederate and Union generals. Many of the town's Civil War-era buildings remain, including homes used by commanding generals. The site of a large "Contraband Camp" for ex-slaves, the location of many extant Union earthworks, and the famous rail crossing itself are all part of walking and driving tours of the town. Pick up tour info at the town visitor center, 215 N Fillmore St. See corinthcivilwar.com for more Corinth Civil War information.
