The final battles of the Civil War in Mississippi were fought in and around Tupelo. From decisive Confederate victories at the Battle of Brice's Crossroads to bitter defeats at the Battle of Tupelo/Harrisburg and the Battle of King's Creek, Tupelo played an important part in the War Between the States. The last stands of the Confederate cavalry in Northeast Mississippi occurred here in the summer of 1864. Military history was made at the sites marked on the Civil War Trail, telling Tupelo's story during this tumultuous time in our history.
