BALDWYN, Miss. (WTVA) - On Saturday people honored the men that fought in the Battle at Brices Cross Roads.

In honor of those men, the 114th Infantry Reactivated unveiled a monument.

Members of that infantry gathered on the grounds that many lost their lives 155 years ago.

The battle took place on June 10, 1864, and the Confederate Army defeated a much larger Union force.

Descendants of those men, supporters of those men, and several others were in attendance to see the monument be unveiled.
