“A grim reminder of the Civil War”

Vicksburg National Cemetery embraces 116 acres, and holds the remains of 17,000 Civil War Union soldiers, a number unmatched by any other national cemetery. Covering ground once manned by the extreme right of Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman's XV Army Corps during the siege of Vicksburg, it was established by an act of Congress in 1866, and serves as the final resting place for United States soldiers who gallantly served this country in times of national and international conflict.

What a beautiful place. We stopped for an hour on our way to Florida but could have spent all day.

The Vicksburg park was great! We noticed at the visitor center that tours were available, but unsure if it would be worth the expense we went ahead watched the intro video and found that to be very informative which pushed me toward the personal tour guide. 20$ an hour turned out to be a deal! They called our guide who said he could be there in 15min and showed up right on time. Robert Terry was his name and was a wealth of knowledge that captivated my 13&10yr old boys. If you have the chance it is a must do!

Impressive and melancholy place. If, like us, you're not very familiar with the area's history, check out the video in the visitor's centre to get an understanding of the siege before you drive around the grounds. Pretty amazing to see how the landscape was physically altered by the war. The iron-clad river gunboat USS Cairo, which was raised from the Yazoo River in recent decades and reconstructed in the park, is a particularly dramatic sight.

There is allot to see and hear especially if your a history buff. We did the car tour and paid for the audio which I feel was well worth it. Our two kids enjoyed it however they were getting a bit bird by the end. I was still well entertained. They loved the museum and the ship was way cool!

They buried 17,000 union soldiers here. I wonder what they did with the all of the dead Confederates?

For Civil War history fans, this is a must visit and the Park Service has done a good job of developing an interpretive tour that shows people the important parts of the field. In addition, the visit to the USS Cairo union ironclad museum adds to one's understanding of the nature of war along the Mississippi and the western rivers. The film is well done and puts the fight into the context of the larger conflict.
