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.

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.

It is the size of a front lawn. There is not a lot of signage or information about the Battle of Tupelo. As another reviewer stated, don't bother unless you happen to pass it on the way to something else. It is definitely not worth hunting it down. A great disappointment. The size would have been okay if there would... More

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。
