Two minutes at Union cemetery site at Parker's Crossroads

Federal fallen from the battle on Dec. 31, 1862, were buried at this site, now within sight of busy Interstate 40. The remains of nearly all the soldiers here were exhumed two years after the Civil War for re-burial in a national cemetery in Corinth, Miss.

  1. Despite the obvious distraction of I-40, the Parker's Crossroads battlefield is well worth a visit.
    Much of the original battefield is intact and interpretted quite well.
