A look at Civil War Corinth

— —through the eyes of wartime artists and photographers —

Tents, army wagons and soldiers crowd the area around the railway depot and Tishomingo Hotel in this view. Over the course of the war it is estimated that about 300,000 troops served in Corinth or passed through this railroad junction. Civilians, including families of army officers, also came to Corinth. Some, such as nine-year-old Maude Morrow, daughter of a Union Army doctor, wrote of their experience. Maude described living in the old Tishomingo Hotel in 1862. "We...were given headquarter in Tishomingo Hotel. The old Tishomingo House! Can I ever forget it? We were given a large cheerless room in the second story. The floor was bare, the four large windows were without blind or curtain.... Across the railroad...was another encampment...night after night I have sat on the upper porch listening entranced to the regimental band, as it played Hail Columbia, Star Spangled Banner, Red, White, and Blue, Rally Round the Flag and America. Each night the band would play from dark to bedtime, and I could not be induced to leave my post until the last note had died away in the silence."
