“The Town was poor in everything, but patriotism” Corinth in the Civil War is a free program to be held at the library on Tuesday September 28 at 7pm discussing the role of Corinth and its citizens during the Civil War. The program features Historian Rachel Clothier of the Corinth Museum and will be an evening of history, photographs and slides.
This program is made possible by a gift awarded to the library through the We the People Bookshelf national grant project. The library was one of 4,000 libraries across the country selected to receive a We the People Bookshelf grant, which provided free hardcover editions of 17 classic books on the theme of “A More Perfect Union.” The library also received bonus materials, including a DVD edition of “The Civil War,” the award-winning documentary by Ken Burns. The grant was awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in cooperation with the American Library Association. Funding for this program was also provided by The Friends of the Corinth Free Library.
