I kinda expected more from a national battlefield. This is actually just an acre lot across from a car wash. It has a memorial and a couple of cannons. Only recommend this if you are doing an entire Civil War tour.

We are National park fans and visit as many as we can. While little more than an acre, it's still interesting to learn about these important civil war battles. The city has grown around the battlefield but the memorial is good.

On only a acre of land bit it all ties in to the last few battles of the war. Only a few miles north to the Brice's Crossing battlefield where the Gen Forest met Sherman's flank.

Was doing a tour of the battlefields in the area. Nice monument very small and wish there was a visitor center located near by. Compared to others this was very disappointing.

On our way to Florida I thought it would be a neat pitstop. It is a important historical marker and a nice tribute but I thought it was small. Not much to see but my young son enjoyed the cannons and I enjoyed the history of the site.

Not much to see. The actual battlefield is downtown. It's just a block with a historical marker. Not what I envisioned. However, it was a place to reflect about those that gave their lives for freedom.

This is in the middle of town on the corner of a busy intersection. There are a couple of cannons and monuments to Confederate and Yankee soldiers that fought on that spot. It was good to take a moment and reflect the sacrifice that these men gave for their beliefs.

There wasn't much for park. There was just enough room to park our three motorcycles. A great piece of history.

All that's left of the battle of Tupelo, this site is a small city block along the main street. We actually parked in an office lot next door, but I think you'd be able to park on the street to the west. A couple of monuments, a couple of headstones...not at all like Shiloh or Vicksburg, but important to the... More

Compared to a number of civil war battlefields visited this is one of the smallest sites. The signage gives all the information you need on what happened and when. Have to admit it took us longer to find a oar King space than walk aro d the site.
