Brice Crossroads National Battlefield was preserved in order to commemorate the June 10, 1864 Confederate victory near Tupelo, Mississippi. Although less than an acre in size, there are two walking trails you can travel to position yourself on the battlefield and imagine what it might have been like during the battle.
