|Vicksburg's 300 ft bluffs controlled the Mississippi for the Confederacy|
I paid the $8.00 admission to the park on an overcast / drizzling morning and headed for the Welcome Center Museum. The museum contains about a dozen different scenes from the battle and siege.
|Museum exhibit depicting Confederate troops in their trenches.|
|A US trench marker along the tour road.|
|A Confederate 30 pounder, the biggest cannon they had.|
|Thayer's Approach offered one of the few cleared avenues.|
|Confederate positions were by the white tower.|
|You get to walk right through the inside of the Cairo.|
Thanks for reading!
