CORINTH RESEARCH BIBLIOGRAPHY

Alcorn County Historical Association. THE HISTORY OF ALCORN COUNTY MISSISSIPPI. Dallas, Texas: National ShareGraphics, Inc. 1983. 646-Page Volume with good local and family history articles. Unfortunately, the publisher who arranged to publish many county histories in the Southeast, failed to properly make many of the corrections noted by the local editors. Illustrated with maps, drawings and photographs. Indexed. The work abounds with references to ancestors who served in the Civil War or had some experience as non-combatants. Cochran, Fan Alexander. HISTORY OF OLD TISHOMINGO COUNTY MISSISSIPPI TERRITORY. Oklahoma City, OK: Barnhart Printing Co. 1st Printing 1969, 2nd Printing 1971, 3rd Printing 1972. Information abstracted from a 1903 Corinth, Mississippi, newspaper, special edition by Samuel M. Nabors. There are several other reprints from the original newspaper. Cochran's book is the only one indexed. Pages 177 - 217 provide a list of soldiers who served from Old Tishomingo County, Miss., or moved into the area. The original 1903 list is not complete as soldier's names and other information is sometime suspect. All in all, a good place to begin. Cockrell, Monroe F. THE LOST ACCOUNT OF THE BATTLE OF CORINTH AND COURT-MARTIAL OF GEN. VAN DORAN BY AN UNKNOWN AUTHOR -- Introduction and Informal Essay on the Battle by Monroe F. Cockrell.
