Corinth in the Civil War

  • Grant Cottage 1000 Mount McGregor Road Wilton, NY 12831 United States (map)

The Town of Corinth borders Mount McGregor to the west.  During the Civil War, Corinth sent two out of every seven men of its population to fight for the Union.  Many men did not return and those that did came back with stories of tragedy, heroism and tales that stir the imagination.  Join Corinth Historian Rachel Clothier at the Cottage as she shares some of their stories and photos, collected by the Corinth Museum.

The suggested donation for Grant Cottage Porch Programs is $5 per person. These programs are made possible thanks to a grant from the Adirondack Trust Community Fund. Our events are supported with funding from the New York State Park and Trail Partnership Program (NYSPTPP) and New York’s Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSPTPP is administered by Parks & Trails New York, in partnership with the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
