Do yourself a favor and just keep on driving down Main Street as you pass this "battlefield". The information provided at this site does a serious disservice to the relevance of this battle. As a HUGE civil war history buff, I am sorely disappointed.

This site commemorates the July 1864 Battle of Tupelo. Don't expect much. Unlike other National Park Service battlefields, this one is only 1 acre and you won't see a park ranger there.

Stopped by after staying evening in Tupelo as part of our effort to visit National Parks and National Monuments. Extremely small monument area, took effort to imagine the history with suburbia nearby. Would have felt like visit was a waste of time if it was...More

During our trip to Mississippi we saw several battlefields and this was probably the smallest but it does not make it any less appealing to see

I am a Civil War buff and if I am in a town that has a museum/battlefield/cemetery, I will usually go see. It is small, but it is still worth the effort.

The Battlefield is interesting with monuments, gravesites and information boards. However, it is very small, on the corner of a very busy street, with very limited parking. Worth a stop if you're in Tupelo.

We have been to so many NBFs & NMP s, we were not expecting this! I suggest they should mention that its just a memorial with a small structure & 2 cannons

I agree with other reviewers but it's still nice to stop and see a site where they have taken the time to commentate the men who fought and died here. It's much easier to find than the Raymond Battlefield. We've tried to find it twice...More

We are traveling to all the NPS units and I do not remember a less noteworthy site. The interpretation is actually at the Natchez Trace Information Center. Though it is only a mile off the Trace it is not really much more notable than a...More
