We are traveling to all the NPS units and I do not remember a less noteworthy site. The interpretation is actually at the Natchez Trace Information Center. Though it is only a mile off the Trace it is not really much more notable than a historical marker. The memorial is duplicated at Brice Crossroads.

Was a little disappointed in this location, no place to park onsite. You must park across the street and then cross a busy 4 lane highway with no real crosswalk at the light. Once you get to the place, there are 2 grave sites , a monument,and cannon with a map showing where, when, and what took place ! Being... More

If you want a quiet place to sip your Starbucks, then a few minutes here might be worthwhile. Two cannons and a plaque do not make for a good historical site. Instead head to Baldwin Mississippi and visit Mississippi's Final Stands Interperative Site. It tells the story of the intertwined battles of Tupelo and Brice's Crossroads. The volunteers are very...

This park is just a corner lot in town. Park on the street, bounce out of the car, take pics, you're done. Stopped by the visitor center but didn't have time and it was pricey.

Unless you're a real Civil War fanatic, it's not worth the detour off the Trace to see it. Less than a city block, a couple of canon, a couple of headstones, a couple of monuments and a single informational board.

Not much to see. We didn't even get out of the car. We just pulled up on the side of the street and looked at it from our vehicle while we decided on our next destination. No parking, either.

Whoever saved this little last bit of history whouls be praised. IT seems asthough America is whiping it's histpry away. This was a very important part of the battle for Independence and it's almost gone.

This was one of the saddest national parks I've been to. While I understand that it is a part of Civil War history (hence a two instead of a one rating), all it is is a plot of land across a car wash with a flag and a standing memorial. There is one billboard that briefly explains the site and... More

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.
