The Siege That Was Not
This chapter describes events involving the small town of Corinth, which was originally known as Cross City because the railroads, the west-to-east Memphis & Charleston and north-to-south Mobile & Ohio, intersected there. That intersection made the town important to both the Union army and Confederates, for railroads carried supplies and reinforcements. The chapter details the Union’s capture of Corinth, which would remain in Union hands until the latter days of the war.
