This Corinth Battlefield Cemetery commemorates the thousands of unknown grave locations of both Union and Confederate soldiers who died on the battlefields of Corinth, Mississippi, during the Civil War. Many of these unknown grave locations around Corinth were unmarked single graves, and some were trenches where many bodies were buried in mass. As with other Civil War battlefields, some bodies were never buried but left in the fields and woods where the soldiers died.

Note that this Corinth Battlefield Cemetery is distinctly different from the Corinth National Cemetery. The Corinth National Cemetery was established in 1866 ty the U.S. Government as a place to intern the Union casualties of the Second Battle of Corinth, and it does not contain the Confederate soldiers and many of the Union soldiers from the First Battle of Corinth.
