Description
During the Civil War, Corinth was occupied by both Union and Confederate troops. In October 1862 forces clashed in the Battle of Corinth, one of the war's more intense engagements. Some historians consider it to have been the bloodiest battle in the Western Hemisphere. Battery Robinett, 501 W. Linden St., is a reconstruction of the part of the Federal inner line of defense that was the most contested position during the battle.
Corinth National Cemetery, a segment of the Corinth Civil War Battlefield, is the final resting place for more than 5,600 soldiers. Historic buildings dating from before and after the war line city streets.
