Parkers Crossroads presents walk

Posted: Wednesday, December 7, 2011 4:03 pm

The Parkers Crossroads Battlefield Association is inviting the public to join them for a walk on the 149th anniversary of the battle at Parkers Crossroads. Guests are asked to meet Dec. 31 at 10 a.m. at Tour Stop 7. Historian Steve McDaniel will host the walk as visitors carpool to the site the Confederate artillery first engaged Federals at Hicks Field (Tour Stop 2).
The walk will retrace the route taken by troops as they approach the Crossroads, ending at the Federal’s last line of defense – the rail fence. Please dress appropriately for a three to three and half-mile walk. Should weather be inclement, McDaniel will speak of the battle at the visitor’s center located in Parkers Crossroads at 20945 Hwy 22 north.
For directions or more information, call the visitor’s center at (731) 968-1191.
