Description: 

Corinth is a town in extreme northeastern Mississippi, roughly 60-70 miles from the approximate location of Yoknapatawpha County, and 20 miles south of the Shiloh battlefield. The city fell to Union forces in the Civil War at the end of May 1862, just days after the initial attempt to take Vicksburg by a naval campaign.
