Marshall County Historical Museum

220 East College Avenue, Holly Springs, MS 38635, USA

The Civil War hit Holly Springs hard. The town experienced sixty-two raids, the most famous being Confederate Maj. Gen. Earl Van Dorn's December 20, 1862 raid on Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's camp, in the course of which his troops destroyed millions of dollars worth of Federal supplies. At the time, Holly Springs served as headquarters for Gen. Grant and arms for the Confederacy were manufactured at the armory in Holly Springs. The Marshall County Museum features a Civil War room and focuses the first few exhibitons of its tour on Civil War artifacts.
