Commemorating and Honoring Our Military


In a nation born out of war, it is in our nature to commemorate and memorialize the conflicts in which we have participated.  In Tupelo, we are honored to personalize the stories of war by telling the individual human story of loss and conflict.  From the Battle of Ackia fought by the Chickasaw Nation to a Civil War battleground and a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, visitors can reflect on the reasons for war and the chaos caused by it, as well as remember those who bravely faced it.

Here are the sites to visit in #MyTupelo:

They Served Here” exhibit opens in January 2020 and lists all of the soldiers who fought at the Battle of Brice’s Crossroads and the Battle of Harrisburg. The exhibit is located at Mississippi Final Stands the Civil War Center.
