Narrative from Don's Sides Mississippi Central Railroad Campaign Website: The Confederate generals were headquartered at Baker’s Tavern at the time of the Battle.  General Tilghman rode down this street, to the right, and on out to the battlefield when he heard the cannonading.  The old Tennessee road is to the left;  the site where General Price’s army of 10,000 passed through town. Many of the wounded were taken to “hospitals” up and down Tennessee Street following the battle

(March 2002) Enlarge Coffeeville, MS. Narrative from Don's Sides Mississippi Central Railroad Campaign Website: Across the street is the site of the old war era courthouse in Coffeeville, and now the site of a church.  It was here that the people of Coffeeville held a grand Confederate ball the night before their local sons went off to war in May of 1861. The ladies of the town presented the unit – the 15th Mississippi infantry – a flag with the words stitched (incorrectly) “Yallabusha Rifles”
