In 1862, a contraband camp was built at Corinth to house escaped slaves seeking refuge with the Union Army. The 600-acre camp had a successful working farm, church, commissary, hospital, school and housing area. As many as 6000 people resided in what was considered a "model camp." The 1st Alabama Infantry Regiment of African Descent was recruited from the camp for service in the Union Army. The present site is comprised of 21-acres with pedestrian promanade. There are bronze figures, which depict life in the camp.
