Long Description:
Tupelo National Battlefield
In July, 1864, Union forces, including men from the United States Colored Troops, marched into Tupelo, Mississippi. Disorganized Confederate soldiers fought fiercely but could not overpower the federal troops. Neither side could claim a clear victory, but Union troops had succeeded in their main goal: keeping the Confederates away from Union railroads in Tennessee.

More than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers fought here between the morning of July 14 and the evening of July 15, 1864.
