Corinth Battlefield Unit
The Corinth Battlefield Unit contains 14 historic sites associated with the siege, battle and occupation of Corinth, MS, during the Civil War. Throughout the war, Confederate and Union troops built miles of earthworks to guard the approaches to Corinth from the north, south, east, and west. Several miles of rifle-pits, trenches, and artillery positions still exists. All of the historic sites, including the Davis Bridge Battlefield 18 miles northwest of Corinth near Pocahontas, TN, are accessible by automobile.
