CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) — The Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center and Shiloh National Military park is hosting a symposium this weekend.
The goal is to explore the significance of the Corinth contraband camp during the Civil War.
Actors who portray famous leaders from that era will take to the stage to tell the stories.
They include Frederick Douglass, a former slave who became an author and social reformer. Also present is Ulysses S. Grant, the famous Union Army General and President of the United States.
"It brings the stories that they have studied through the years to life," said Ashley Berry, Shiloh National Park Ranger.
The symposium includes a tour of the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center and Camp on Friday.
