Alcorn County is located in the Northeast corner of the state of Mississippi, bordering on Tennessee.
It was organized on April 15, 1870, from parts of Tippah and Tishomingo counties, and was named in honor of Gov. James L. Alcorn,
who was the first chief executive of the State chosen under the constitution of 1869. This was the site of the Siege of Corinth,
an early campaign in the American Civil War. Corinth is the county seat of Alcorn County.
