"Charge 'em both Ways!"
This was the legendary order given by Nathan Bedford Forrest as he faced certain encirclement at the Battle of Parker's Cross Roads. Forrest’s daring, decisive action at that moment in Civil War history saved his force from capture or destruction, and helped to ensure his reputation as one of the war’s boldest military commanders.
Your daring, decisive action today will help save the final, most important 52 acres of this battlefield – giving us a whopping 350 acres of preserved Western Theatre historic ground.
There may be a few more scattered acres here and there at Parker’s Cross Roads that would be “nice to have.” But there is no other big, central part of the battlefield that is considered “must-have” ground like this 52-acre parcel.
