Corinth Civil War Center opens

The new Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center will be formally dedicated on July 24 at 1:30 p.m. The 12,000-square-foot center is the first component of the Corinth Unit of the Shiloh National Military Park and will serve visitors wishing to explore the area's many surviving Civil War resources.

The $9.5-million center will interpret the total Civil War experience in the north Mississippi and southwest Tennessee region, particularly the 1862 Siege and Battle of Corinth.

The center includes an interactive museum, 80-seat auditorium, 5,000 square feet of exhibit space and a museum shop. For more information, contact the Corinth Area Tourism Promotion Council at (800) 748-9048.
