“Small, but nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This field of battle during the American Civil War is consistently being saved, improved and enlarged by a group called friends of Raymond. The correct name is Raymond Military Park.
The Battle of Raymond was fought on May 12, 1863, between a 3,000 man Confederate force commanded by Brigadier General John Gregg and the Union forces which were 12,000 strong, commanded by Major General James McPherson. This group was part those under the command of Major General Ulysses S. Grant. Despite being outnumbered, Gregg’s Confederate forces held their position along the banks of Fourteen mile Creek. This is the site of the Raymond Military Park. The battle lasted for four hours until forced to withdraw. Gen. Gregg marched his men back through Raymond, and from there to the Confederate fortifications at Jackson, Mississippi.
