Tupelo and Brices Crossroads

These two sites were a bit disappointing. I was obviously expecting too much, considering the other Civil War battlefields that I have seen. Still, I am not a fan of a check-cashing joint directly across the street from a national battlefield. The encroachment of development can kill our historical sites (check out the Alamo), and I know the Civil War Preservation Trust is actively trying to ensure that more sites are saved.

Don't know the latest at Montecello, but last time I was there (four years ago?), there was talk of the privately-owned land that Montecello looked over being sold for residential development.

Too bad.
