A look at Civil War Corinth

— Through the eyes of wartime artists and photographers. —

Judge W.H. Kilpatrick of Corinth had Oak Home built in 1857 by Tom Chesney, a local house designer and builder. Mr. M.S. Miller, a civil engineer working in Corinth shortly before the war, made this sketch in 1860, the only known Civil War vintage picture of Oak Home. Miller notes that a wood fence surrounded the whole block abd that the "fine house" was straw-colored with a yellow door bordered by sidelights.

Gen. Leonidas Polk, C.S.A. occupied Oak Home in 1862 until the siege of Corinth ended in May.
