Action from that battle spilled over to the railroad crossroads in Corinth, and later that year, the Battle of Corinth was fought there. Though the main section of Shiloh National Military Park is in Tennessee, the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center is considered part of the park and is near the site of a fortification where fighting took place in the Battle of Corinth. The museum features video overviews on both battles in the area, as well as a full- scale replica of earthworks that were dug at the battlefield. Nearby, the Crossroads Museum occupies a former train depot and has an extensive collection of Civil War artifacts. WHILE YOU'RE THERE: Borroum's Drug Store, the oldest operat- ing drugstore and soda fountain in Mississippi, has been owned and operated by the same family since the 1860s. The soda shop features old-fashioned treats such as malts, banana splits and sundaes, all served with equipment from the 1920s and 1930s. MORE INFO | www.corinth.net 5 © EPE.
