Grand Illumination Corinth MS

Hundreds of volunteers will honor the souls of the twelve thousand Civil War casualties by lighting luminaries.
The luminaries will be placed at the site of Battery Robinett/Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center and then form a path into downtown highlighting antebellum homes, the historic business district, the Contraband Camp and the historic railroad crossings.

In 2012, Corinth’s Grand Illumination will offer many special events throughout the two-days. Downtown shops will kick off the holiday season with open houses and free horse-drawn carriage rides throughout the historic district. While on a complimentary Downtown Walking Tour, visitors learn the stories of the people and events that shaped the history of the small crossroads town.

At the Civil War Interpretive Center, Living History Programs will be hosted by the 43rd Mississippi Camel Corps with live camels on the grounds. Artillery demonstrations will be offered. A variety of story telling, poetry reading & entertainment will be held at the Corinth Contraband Camp.

Local music and performances by local threate youth will be held on the amphitheatre stage at Trailhead Park. Musicians will present Civil War favorites at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. Hot chocolate and coffee will be available prior to the performance.
