Large battlefield, that was historically documented by survivors of the battle. Take your time and stop often to honor the great Americans who fought and died here for their deeply held values.

Excellent tour through history. We drove through the 15 miles or so of national park and stopped at the numbered sites on the park map. Beautiful views. There is a solemn but intriguing feeling to the experience.

See the 20-minute film introducing and portraying the significance of Vicksburg for both the success of the Union and the survival of the Confederacy. Admission is reasonable and America the Beautiful passes are accepted. The 16-mile, mostly one-way, auto tour... More
