The battlefield park is a tiny lot on Main Street with a couple cannons and a good descriptive sign. It does not take long to visit this park, but it gives you the typography of the battle and brings home the point that there was fighting all over the South, not just in the major engagements that turned the war...

南北戰爭之Tupelo戰鬥 1864年北方的聯邦Union軍隊將領謝爾曼Sherman帶著他的西路軍發動一場代號“海了去了(March to the Sea)"的戰役,想一舉平叛南方的邦聯Confederate軍隊。 準備打到Savannah,活捉郝思嘉。 南軍司令見勢不妙,要求佛瑞斯特Forrest上將在阿拉巴馬密西西比協防。 說起這個Forrest將軍,從來沒有任何軍事訓練,內戰爆發的時候只是一名大兵private,最後戰績輝煌一路升任上將。 Sherman恨他恨得說“老佛不死田州不寧 there never will be peace in Tennessee till Forrest is dead"。 難怪後來阿甘他爸給兒子也起名叫Forrest呢,真是南方紅脖們的驕傲。 Forrest才不像阿甘那麼傻,知道正面打不過Sherman,想出歪招去扒鐵路。 他帶著騎兵說扒就扒,一口氣在扒了六哩地鐵道! 效率可比棗莊那幫農民鐵道游擊隊效率高。 這可要了老謝的親命了,北軍的供給就靠從Ohio經Menphis到Nashville-Chattanooga這條鐵道線了。 萬一供給被Forrest給絞殺了,抓不到郝思嘉說不定還被她白瑞德們活捉。 Sherman趕快請Memphis方向Sturgis準將從西面過來消滅這幫鐵道游擊隊。 Forrest得信之後想想自己這3500工兵肯定不是Sturgis那8500團級幹部的對手,趕快從阿拉巴馬的Russelville退守密西西比集中兵力準備固守待援。 這Tupelo地區是東西向和南北向兩條鐵路的交匯地,於是一場遭遇戰就在這Tupelo展開了。戰場呢,就選在我現在住的旅館Garden Inn下面。 叮呤咣啷一通打,雙方陣亡了200多。 戰果難分勝負,看上去Forrest把北軍的Surgis打回了Menphis, 但是他這邊死的人多,並且扒鐵路的項目不得不荒廢了。 等他9月份再回到田納西的時候,老謝已經火燒亞特蘭大,不再需要這條補給線了。

As a history buff I went here with the family. Don't even bother. There is really nothing to this historic sight. It is so small that I drove by it the first time I went down the road. It really offers very very little.

Happy to see memorial and that maintained so well no matter how small. We stopped, observed and reflected. It is well done with small parking area on west side.

This battlefield is really tiny! Just a small city block with a monument on it signifying a battlefield during the civil War

We were a little disappointed with this memorial. I think we were searching for a bigger battlefield but it's really just a small patch.

This is one the corner of an intersection and there is no real parking nearby. There is a memorial statue and several cannons but know this going there and decide if you want to really visit.

We expected it to be a little bigger, glad we had read up on the battle in history with the kids ahead of time. Very quick stop, wouldn't take the time to head off the highway if I didn't have other things to do I. Tupelo!

This site was interesting. However, it was much smaller than I expected. I read the information online and when I arrived, I saw the same information again and a couple of monuments. That was about it. I'm glad I've been there, but won't go back.

We drove by the battlefield before we went to the visitor center. The battlefield is hard to stop at because there is limited parking, but it looked neat when we drove by. The visitor center is about 6 miles to the north of the monument, but it was easy to find. The park ranger that was working while we were... More
