Vincent's Crossroads is located near the present day Red Bay, Alabama City Cemetery. (It is named for my gggg grandfather.) The battle did not take place at the crossroads. It was the nearest known common named place. Some reports list it as
Vincent's Crossroads Mississippi. Mann's mill, which was listed in one report, is just to the n.e. of Belmont, Mississippi. Widow Clark's house (or at least a widow Clark's house) was in what is now north Belmont Mississippi. The locals have heard legends of a buried Union soldier in a field there.
