Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center

Located in the Shiloh National Military Park, this striking visitor center of the National Park Service truly draws viewers into a sense of history. The exhibit begins with a room depicting the path to war and the social, political and economic conditions at the time. After crossing a replica railroad track set into the floor, visitors pass through a reproduction of a Civil War-era wooden boxcar highlighting the importance of the railroads. The center of the Shiloh Theatre is dominated by a circular seven screen mini-theatre which shows a movie about the battle. The battle is also depicted through maps and large, dramatic photos of the heavy fighting. The museum uses vintage photographs, large displays and a brief video to tell the story of the Union occupation of Corinth. Photos, displays and artifacts tell the story of the Corinth Contraband Camp.
