The Vicksburg Battlefield really brought the Civil War to life for me when we visited several years ago.

We purchased the audio tour to pop in the cd player. . .really great.

Hubby is a Civil War buff, so we plan to tour several more battlefields. The one at Shiloh TN is heart rendering, and gut wrenching.

As usual, enjoyed your story. . .thanks for sharing, and if you are coming through TX please let us know, would love to meet you!

When we were there last fall we wanted to see the Cairo, unhooked and raced over to the park only to be told that they were still working on the new enclosure and the it was closed to the public. From your pictures it looks like they did a great job.

Thank you for posting this. I have never been to Vicksburg but wish to make the battlefield someday.
I do have an ancestor who was there, however for the 47 day siege. My GG Grandfather who was a Corporal with the 76th IL Infantry. He brought back a piece of the "Surrender Tree" and I still have it in my posession.
