We had to visit Brice Cross Roads Battlefield to better understand the battle of Tupelo. Both are important sites and this one is right in town on Main St so if you’re visiting Tupelo you should visit. Lots of trees, 2 cannons, Confederate grave sites...More

There was no visitor center, just a monument and graves on a corner in Tupelo. A little disappointing. It was really hard to find, we drove by it several times before we realized it was there.
