Civil War - Jacinto, Mississippi Court House, Original Relic Nails & Medallion:
For your consideration, this is a great relic set featuring three original square head nails from the original construction of the Jacinto Court House located in the ghost town of Jacinto, Mississippi. The nails were removed during major restoration of the building. Also included is a Jacinto Court House 1976 Cross Roads Jubilee Celebration Souvenier Medallion. Jacinto was a growing new city in the early 1800's and the court house dates from 1854. Situated near Corinth and Iuka, Mississippi, Jacinto died out when they refused to let the railroad come through Jacinto. During the Civil War, General Rosecrans used the Jacinto Court House as his base of operations and even housed his horses in the ground floor breezeway of the court house. Rosecrans planned the battle of Iuka, Mississippi at the Jacinto Court House and moved his men from Jacinto to Iuka to fight the battle. The court house is still there and is open for tours. A very nice museum is also located in an old general store building located directly across the street from the court house. These original nails and medallion would look great framed along with a photo of the Jacinto Court House. As a free bonus, I will also include a cd of jpg photographs which I took myself during my visits to Jacinto, Mississippi. There are many photos of what is left of the town of Jacinto, the Court House (interior and exterior) as well as the museum. This would be a very nice gift or a great addition to your Civil War collection! A low starting offer with ensures this one is going home with someone!
