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

The monument itself is neat but it is not very easily accessible. It is worth the visit though if you are interested in American History.

There wasn't really much to see here. We were expecting more. We almost missed it when driving to it. I wish there had been more.

If Civil War history is your thing then you can get a little bit of it by visiting the battlefield. Make this part of your Civil War tour by including Vicksburg and Shiloh. Once you have seen all three you will begin to understand just how much of a personal war this was to the South. You will see how... More

After driving the Natchez Trace Parkway, we found our way to Main Street and eventually the Tupelo National Battlefield. This is a very small battlefield that encompasses a lsmall parcel of land in Tupelo. On July 14, 1864, Confederate forces attacked the Fedreal soldiers here resulting in a two day battle that wounded numerous soldiers on both sides and killed... More

We almost missed this little "park", really not much more then a small green grass patch at the side of the road on the Eastern end of Tupelo. It is not more than a marker and two displays. Easily read in 15 minutes. Somewhat interesting to read but really hard to imagine what happened there. Don't go to Tupelo just... More

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..

Not a major stop compared to Shiloh, Cornith and Brices crossroad battle site, but one to check off your list. parking is limited to the side street, NONE... More

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
