“Mississippi’s Last Stands” exhibit
The newly created “Mississippi’s Last Stands” exhibit, which interprets the Battle of Brice’s Crossroads fought June 10, 1864 and the Battle of Harrisburg/Old Town Creek fought July 13-15, 1864, opened in April of 2011. These two battles are focus of new indoor and outdoor exhibits at the former Brice’s Crossroads Visitor’s and Interpretive Center and at both battlefields. Visitors can now enjoy a complete look at the Civil War that will include a civil war timeline, a memorial and remembrance wall, an exhibit outlining “Mississippi in the Civil War”, army definitions, and a complete story of Brice’s Crossroads and Harrisburg-Old Town Creek battles. The exhibit is housed in 4000 sq. ft. interpretive center complete with restrooms, bookstore, flag exhibit, video and exhibit area, and a conference room.
