The Battle of Parkers Crossroads was fought Dec. 31, 1862. The Parkers Crossroads Battlefield Park offers a self-guided driving tour, two miles of paved walking trails with interpretative signs and battlefield diorama. As a result of this battle, which both sides claimed as a victory, Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Forrest troops crossed the Tennessee River and Grant's rail communications were severed in West Tennessee.
