‪Awesome Historic Tour Sites‬
بمفردك • مايو 2021
‪I visited Brices Crossroads National Battlefield and did a portion of the driving tour. I had a little trouble understanding the layout of the battlefield sites since there are a number of pull offs along several local roads. The main memorial and gravesites are a must-visit. Near those sites, are two parking areas with interpretive signs and a 1/4 mile walking trail onto the battlefield and a bridge over the creek. It was a nice place to stretch my legs and read up on the battle that took place there. Definitely a great short stop when in the Tupelo area.‬

‪Lots of locations to explore, but I liked the information at the river. The Federals had a hard time retreating across the river. The river today is beautiful.‬

‪Small Civil War battlefield‬
مارس 2021
‪The visitors center wasn't open when I drove by so I just went to the main battlefield area. There is some parking right off the road at the site. It is not a large battlefield, but has plenty of information about what happened, some monuments and cannon, and a cemetery adjoining. It is a neat stop and a must for Civil War enthusiasts.‬

‪I’m embarrassed to say we drove here from the Natchez Trace Visitor center and completely missed the visitor center/cemetery/bridge located at this site. We expected this site to be similar to the Tupelo Battlefield so we only spent time in the open battlefield area with the cannons and plaques. Don’t do what we did, check out the whole place.

‪Start at visitor center first, but google takes you right to the crossroads. Few quick auto tour stops. No bathrooms. Bridge was neat.‬

‪We have been here often including some reenactments. This is a place it takes multiple trips and you still find something new. There is a motor tour with a cd that gives the chain of events that happened here during the battle. You need to get this from the Interpretive Center.‬

‪Great Confederate Victory that Aided the Union‬
بمفردك • أكتوبر 2018
‪As Maj. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman army began its march from Chattanooga through northern Georgia with the intent of destroying the Confederate Army of Tennessee and capturing Atlanta, his army was dependent upon a supply line comprising of a single railroad through Tennessee and northern Alabama. Recognizing this vulnerability, Maj. Gen. Stephen Lee ordered Maj. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest to attack Sherman’s supply line and destroy the railroad.

As Forrest moved his forces out of Tupelo into northern Alabama to attack the supply line, Sherman ordered Brig. Gen. Samuel Sturgis to take his forces from Memphis into northern Mississippi to eliminate Forrest and the threat he posed to his supply line. Learning of Sturgis’ move into northern Mississippi, Forrest rushed back to Tupelo leading to the battle at Brices Cross Roads on June 10th, 1864.

While the battle resulted in a great victory for Forrest as he accomplished a raw double envelopment, turning both flanks of Sturgis’ line simultaneously, crushing the Union forces which caused them abandon the field in disarray, allowing the Confederates to capture numerous artillery pieces and supply wagons, the larger strategic goal of the Union, protecting Sherman’s supply line, was accomplished at least for a while.

Today, the 1-acre battlefield memorial is located at the intersection of MS-370 and county roads 833 and 231. While the memorial site is not much more than a couple of cannon, a few monuments and two interpretive panels, it is surrounded by almost 1,400 acres of private land that preserves the battlefield which can be toured on foot and by car; maps and additional information can be obtained at the Brice’s Crossroads Visitor and Interpretive Center located near the intersection of MS-370 and US-45 and operated by the town of Baldwyn. Adjacent to the battlefield memorial, is the site of Bethany Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, across the street from the current church, which served as a field hospital after the battle, and the historic Bethany A.R.P. Church Cemetery which contains the graves of 96 Confederate soldier that lost their life from the battle.

One can get their passport stamped at the Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Center located about 15 miles (24k) away in Tupelo but I was disappointed that there was no additional information or exhibits interpreting the battle.‬

‪Nice Part of Civil War History‬
زوجان • سبتمبر 2018
‪Not all Civil War battles were large and grand battles. Brice's Crossroad is a great example of one of those small but not insignificant battles. It is a short auto tour but well worth the side trip to the area to take it.‬

‪Beautiful!!!‬
زوجان • مايو 2018
‪We decided to drive off the main highway in search of a battlefield in which we had never studied in all our history classes. The statues were so beautiful and honored the men that fought in this battle. The cannons reminded me of what happened here so long ago....a last stand! Please stop by the interpretive center for more clarification about this battle.‬

‪One of Forrest's great victories‬
بمفردك • أبريل 2018
‪On the way back from Corinth and Shiloh NMP, I decided to stop at Brice's Crossroads National Battlefield. This is a very significant site commemorating one of Gen. N.B. Forrest's victories in 1864. Be sure to stop at the Mississippi Final Stands Interpretive Center at the highway exit to obtain some guides and maps showing where are the stops are. You can also follow the "Mississippi 1864" signs along the way to show you which way to go to find all the significant stops.

There are several auto-tour stops along Bethany Rd/MS Hwy 370 with a historical monument/marker at each one describing the events and significance of each stop. Also, there are a couple of other stops with some short trails with interpretive markers describing events from the battle. These have been placed by the Civil War Trust and the state of Mississippi through a grant from the National Park Service.

There is more to see now than what some of the previous reviewers have mentioned so it is well worth your while to visit if you are interested in the Civil War. Also, at the main stop with the monuments and cannon, there is an old local cemetery and a Confederate Cemetery with almost 100 CSA soldier graves of those who died in battle on July 10, 1864.

Again, I highly recommend visiting if you are interested in our country's history and especially, Civil War history.‬
