About the Commission

Iuka Battlefield Commission, Inc. (IBFC) was established in 2001 primarily in order to obtain financial assistance to acquire and obtain battlefield property that was available at the time.

With the assistance of the Civil War Preservation Trust and the State of Mississippi, grants were secured and 58 acres of battlefield property was acquired in 2001. In 2005, with the assistance of the State of Mississippi, two additional acres were secured.

Following these accomplishments, the Iuka Battlefield Commission, Inc. (IBFC) moved its headquarters to the Old Tishomingo County Courthouse Museum under the umbrella of the Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society (TCHGS).

Civil War interpretation, preservation, and education is a partnership between the Iuka Battlefield Commission, Inc. and its parent organization, the Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society. The Iuka Battlefield in Tishomingo County, Mississippi, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 14, 2007.
