We are planning a day in Vicksburg on our way back from a preaching trip with my dad, and here are some links I want to remember:
The Mississippi River and the Vicksburg Campaign (American Civil War)
The Vicksburg Campaign described in This Country of Ours
Map and quick descriptions of various sites along the Vicksburg Campaign Trail
Reenactment pictures of cave living during the campaign
Picture of the U.S.S. Cairo, Civil War ironclad
I'd like to find a map of the Mississippi River and its tributaries. We're going to review Minn of the Mississippi too, before the trip. The kids are most interested in the river and the bluffs and other natural aspects of the region.
