Corinth, MS

A pits-stop in Corinth proved very interesting.  There you will find a Civil War Interpretive Center operated by the National Park Service. Corinth is at a crossroad — there is a railroad that intersects the Mobile & Ohio line with the Memphis & Charleston line. You can see the railroad from the building.

There is so much to see, Apparently Corinth was a significant place in African American history with the Contraband Camp; there is a carving on one of the exhibits that reads: “Corinth was the beginning of freedom for African American’s who lived here.”

I highly recommend viewing exhibits from the National Park Service site. My favorite is always the video as I learn so much. There is much to see both indoors and outdoors and the Park Service Rangers are extremely helpful.

My favorite part was the embedded artifacts outside the building. Everywhere–in the grass, on the sidewalk, beside a tree, inside the bricks there were embellishments of Civil War life. It truly made the historic landmark come alive.
