Overview

Battery Robinett was built by the Federal Army following the Siege of Corinth and was the site of fierce fighting on October 4, 1862, during the 2nd day of the Battle of Corinth. The obelisk pays tribute to Col. William P. Rogers of the 2nd Texas Infantry who showed great bravery trying to climb the walls of the battery to claim it for the Confederacy. Four unknown Civil War soldiers are buried on this site.

The rebuilt redoubt was a major point of the failed Confederate attack at the Battle of Corinth. It provides us with a detailed idea of what one might have seen from both inside and outside, depending on your location during the battle.

Adjacent to the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center and part of the National Park Serive Shiloh National Military Park unit. Excellent to learn about the involvement of Northern Mississippi and Southern Tennessee in the war.

Off the beaten path interpretive area which is part of the Corinth National Battlefield. This marker will give the visitor a little more in depth information about the artillery used during the Battle of Corinth
