HAUNTED BATTLEFIELDS GHOST STORIES AND GHOST PHOTOS

Tupelo National Battlefield Ghost

Moore's Creek National Battlefield is a United States National Battlefield managed by the National Park Service. The park commemorates the 1776 victory by 1,000 Patriots over 1,600 Loyalists at the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge NC. The battle ended Royal Governor Josiah Martin's hopes of regaining control of the colony for the British crown. The Loyalist defeat ended British plans for an invasionary force to land in Brunswick, North Carolina. The colony of North Carolina voted to declare independence from the British on April 12, 1776, shortly after the victory at Moores Creek. The park was established as a National Military Park on June 2, 1926 and was redesignated as a National Battlefield on September 8, 1980.

The Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge was fought near Wilmington, North Carolina, on February 27, 1776, between North Carolina patriots and Scottish Loyalists. The American victory helped spur sentiment for the revolution and increased recruitment of additional soldiers into their forces. It was a Patriot victory.


Patriot militia 1 killed, 1 wounded 30 killed or wounded, Loyalist militia 850 captured

 

 

Ghost of the Battlefield

Smith was criticized for not destroying Forrest and although he was hasty to leave the field, the Union forces had in fact inflicted a tactical defeat on the legendary Forrest. Sherman's supply lines had been protected from Confederate raids. Although Smith had achieved his main goal of the campaign, Forrest's cavalry still remained at large as a viable force.

Often ghost photos are snapped here but because it is in a major city area EVP's have not been reported. A investigation is underway by local Ghost Hhunters and out of area groups and more information will be coming soon.

The grounds of Tupelo National Battlefield are open during daylight hours everyday of the year. The National Park Service administers the National Battlefield through the Natchez Trace Parkway. Visitors are welcome to ask questions and learn more about the battlefield at the Parkway Visitor Center (Milepost 266) located about six miles north of the monument. The Visitor Center is open every day of the year except December 25, 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Central Time). The Natchez Trace Parkway can be reached at 800-305-7417.

Visitors to Tupelo can walk the same countryside that Hernando De Soto explored in 1540, when he and his traveling party stumbled upon a tribe of Chickasaw Indians among the hills of the wooded countryside. Defending the land of their ancestors, the fierce-fighting Chickasaws pushed the Spanish explorer to the west and onward to the Mississippi River, the discovery that made De Soto's name immortal.

Two centuries later, more bloodshed led to British control of the region. Chickasaw warriors, armed by England, drove back French invaders and their Indian allies, the Choctaws. It is known as the Battle of Ackia - a victory that helped Great Britain establish a foothold in North America that would last until the Revolution.

But war is not the only thread that runs through Tupelo's history.

The Natchez Trace, now a scenic parkway, weaves itself through Tupelo's past and into its future. Built to facilitate trade with the Natchez Indians to the South, the now-famous route has endured, serving British travelers in the 1700's and an ensuing flood of settlers who built peaceful civilizations up and down its great length.


But peace was again interrupted when more than 20,000 Union and Confederate troopers clashed in July 1864 at the Battle of Tupelo. Led by Major General Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate cavalry assaulted Union soldiers assigned to protect the supply lines of General William T. Sherman in his famous march to Atlanta. The Union forces ultimately retreated to Memphis, leaving casualties from both sides at nearly 2,000.

Within five years, Tupelo officially became a city, taking its name from the native Tupelo Gum Tree. By 1887, the town's modern roots were being planted at the crossroads of several converging railroads: the Mobile & Ohio, Kansas City and the Memphis & Birmingham. Tupelo's emergence as a railway and manufacturing power helped ensure its status as the first U.S. city to switch on a cheap and reliable source of electricity, through the Tennessee Valley Authority.


The monument at Tupelo National Battlefield is set along Main Street in Tupelo. The surroundings are a stark contrast to the era being memorialized at the one-acre site. There are no fees or reservations associated with Tupelo National Battlefield. The site is a unit of the National Park Service and is administered by the Natchez Trace Parkway, headquartered in Tupelo, along at Parkway Milepost 266. For questions concerning the site call the Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Center at 1-800-305-7417. The Visitor Center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Central Time), every day except December 25. Visitors can view cannons, a monument, and an interpretive wayside.

Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum


The most significant landmark of Tupelo's modern history is Elvis Presley's two-room house where he was born on January 8, 1935. The city is also home to the Tupelo Automobile Museum, Tupelo Buffalo Park, two area National Battlefield sites, the Oren Dunn City Museum and the Natchez Trace Parkway headquarters. In addition, guests can enjoy visual and performing arts through ballet, art exhibitions and wonderful productions by the symphony, community concerts and theatre.

Festivals abound in Tupelo with the Blue Suede Cruise featuring hundreds of classic cars, the GumTree Festival showcasing original artwork and paintings by regional artists, and the Elvis Presley Festival presenting top-notch live entertainment.
