The battle accrued all over the city and outer areas but the National Park Service, only has a small strip of land to place the monument, a few cannons, and a map display board, with no parking spaces, except a small outcrop from the street just prior to a turn lane. I would have liked to see more, but nothing... More

This place is a must see. I live in tupelo, and I drive past it everyday. To see it in person isn't anything like photos. you get a sense of what those fought for our freedom and the love that others gave..

I am a photographer and writer for National Park Planner (npplan.com) and I visited the Tupelo National Battlefield in November 2014. The park commemorates the Battle of Tupelo, fought on July 14-15, 1864, between the army of Union General Andrew J. Smith and Confederate Generals Stephen Lee and Nathan Bedford Forrest. Smith was tasked with hunting down and destroying Forrest... More

Very small corner lot with no parking. Had to drive around the block to look at the site. Really not worth the trouble to seek out to visit.

The best thing about this visit was laughing & thinking that I've visited the nation's smallest national park. The worst part about it was passing the park and turning around in a shady city park to get back to the small corner lot where this park is located. It really is just a corner lot. At least I can say... More

This was hard to spot along the road and then we had trouble finding a place to park. We wanted to get out and look, but it is not set up to encourage that. It is a nice tribute, though, to those who died in that fight.

Only a couple of acres takes about ten minutes to see and get the photo's if your interested in the American civil war it's worth the stop

The old battlefield has been overrun by the city of Tupelo, so not much of it is left. It is a good stop, and it won't take long to visit the attractions.
