(9-2012) Enlarge Battlefield looking towards Colonel Jeffrey Forrest's Death Site


(9-2012) Enlarge Colonel Jeffery Forrest's Death Site on grassland hill between tree line. The Union Line was at the tree line. This is located a nice little distance off of the current Pontotoc Road on private land that is fenced and gated to discourage relic hunters (permission was given to take these photos)

(9-2012) Enlarge The Bramlett House Site. This is the site of the Bramlett house located very near the Colonel Jeffrey Forrest death site. This was the closest home site to the battlefield and Col. Forrest's body was brought here en route to Okolona and rested under the large oak tree near the house. You can still see a few ruins of the house during winter months when the vegetation has died out if you know where to look


(9-2012) Enlarge Prairie Mount Town Site. This is the location of the former town of Prairie Mount, which was mostly abandoned by the time the Civil War started due to the townspeople leaving for Okolona and the coming of Okolona's railroad. This is the scene of the first Federal stand on February 22


(9-2012) Enlarge Prairie Mount Town Cemetery. The only remains left of the ghost town of Prairie Mount. The cemetery was once located on a town block situated around homes and businesses. It now lies overgrown and broken down in the Mississippi woods off the Pontotoc Road. Most people that pass by each day do not realize this was once the site of a prosperous town with huge hopes and dreams
