I was hoping for more...I've read stories about these camps and the impact it had on escaped slaves and the war effort. All this is, is a park with statues representing activities or events. Not much detail. Interesting, but unless you're in the area, not worth going out of your way to see.

It gave me an understanding of just what the blacks had to go through! Eye opening stuff! This place showed the creativity of all slaves and their ability to thrive!

The Camp is an historic site and part of the Corinth Civil War experience where freed slaves lived and worked while the Union occupied Corinth. While there are no plaques to explain what happened there, there are beautiful bronze statues that line a walking trail. It is a strikingly silent way to absorb history. The tall trees offer peace (as long as a train isn't nearby).

There are only six sculptures here, but they are definitely worth seeing. We spent about 20 minutes here, so if you can fit it in, I strongly recommend it. The park is open from dawn to dusk. The figures are very lifelike and make you think, especially the one with the books. It would be nice if flowers could be planted here and park benches and picnic tables installed.

The National Park Service has done another outstanding job with this small park. It consists of, perhaps, two city blocks in area with a leisurely walkway around the periphery that features a half dozen wonderful, life-sized bronze statues of escaped slaves who found a new life and are starting on their long road to freedom. It is a very moving place.
