This your invitation to tour the historic Civil War Battlefield at Parker's
 Crossroads, Tennessee.   The battle took place, December 31, 1862,
during General N. B. Forrest’s First West Tennessee Raid.  It was
significant for Forrest’s unique use of artillery against  infantry and
 famous for its Confederate  commander’s brazen  maneuvering
 resulting in his famous command “charge them both ways!”

The battlefield is located at the intersection of I-40 & Hwy. 22, Exit 108
 mid-way between Memphis and Nashville, approximately 10 miles north
 of Lexington, Tennessee.    The self-guided tour brochure containing a
map and other historic details needed for the tour may be picked up at
the Visitor Center located at
20945 Hwy 22 North in Parkers Crossroads.

The self-guided tour is available to anyone and may be taken by
 hiking, biking, or motor vehicle.   Those completing the tour may
