"All Civil Memorials Important"

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 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
