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.

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.

On my second visit to the Interpretive center, I asked for directions to Battery Robinett. The ranger told me it was on the same grounds as the center so ease of also visiting. Great info on the Battle of Corinth and if you are doing the Civil War trail, quick and easy stop.

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
