For many visitors standing at the one-acre memorial site it is easy to imagine 2 armies clashing in battle here because much of the landscape is the same over 150 years later. Visitors can learn about the scope and impact of this battle that resulted in more than 3,000 casualties by going on a battlefield driving tour. For the student of the battle these tour stops serve as landmarks that lead you to places where hundreds of men made the ultimate sacrifice.

To learn more about the individual monuments located on the battlefield see Battle of Brices Cross Roads Driving Tour.
