For the history bluff, Clinton, MS has much to offer.
While the city does not have a rich Civil War history, Confederate forces and Union troops did briefly occupy the city during the war. Years later, in September 1875, the racially and politically motivated Clinton Riot took place in the downtown area. Approximately 3,000 people participated in the riot, which claimed about 50 lives. The government’s lack of response to the event is what signaled the beginning of the end of the reconstruction movement. During World War II, the town also played a significant role in housing prisoners of war. In fact, 35 of the 40 German generals captured during the war were housed at Camp Clinton, which was a POW camp located south of town.
