UAH History Students Invade Shiloh Battlefield and Corinth, Mississippi
Fifteen UAH students from three classes spent Friday, March 18, 2011, visiting Corinth, Mississippi, and the Shiloh National Battlefield. Although Dr. John Kvach organized the day long tour as part of his Civil War and Reconstruction class, students from other history classes tagged along to learn more about the battle of Shiloh.
The day included a visit to the Corinth Interpretative History Center, an architectural tour of downtown Corinth, and a park ranger-led tour of Shiloh battlefield. Students also enjoyed eating lunch at oldest continuously operated drugstore in Mississippi (famous for something called the Slugburger) and dinner at Hagy’s Catfish Hotel (fish check in but don’t check out). All in all a great day of history!
