The Battle of Tupelo was part of a larger strategy by Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman to protect the railroad that was his supply line. The battle broke out on July 14, 1864 when Federal troops under General AJ Smith battled Confederates under General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Both sides also battled the heat that ultimately forced the Federal forces to retreat.
