(10-2000) "Crossroads of the Confederacy" Junction of the Memphis & Charleston and the Mobile & Ohio Railroads. The view is to the southeast. Corinth Civil War Self-Guided Tour Guide: These two railroads gave Corinth its strategic importance during the Civil War. Here, the Confederacy's only east-west link, the Memphis and Charleston, crossed the Mobile and Ohio. These were the two longest railroads in the Western Confederacy. The Tishomingo Hotel faced the Memphis and Charleston and was situated on the railroad grounds just east of the station. The Corinth House, located on the corner east of the  parking lot, was the Confederate U.S.O. before Shiloh. After Shiloh, both hotels were used as hospitals. During Federal occupation, the Tishomingo was operated as a hotel
