2 reviews of Vicksburg National Military Park

Tamlyn Mueller

One of the most famous Civil War battlefields

Vicksburg National Military Park is one of the best places to visit in Mississippi and a must for fans of history, nature, and American military history. The park was site of the Battle of Vicksburg in 1863 and remains today as one of the best-preserved Civil War battlefield sites in the South. The Battle of Vicksburg is one of the most important and well-known Civil War battles because the Union's victory essentially gave them control over the Mississippi River.

The park is full of trails, routes, and monuments like the Vicksburg National Cemetery, the Indian Mound, and the USS Cairo, a fully restored Civil War-era battleship. That's exactly what makes the Vicksburg site so special: the markers and guides really bring the place to life and the fact that there are also historic homes and even trenches from the battle still intact helps you get into the 19th-century mood.
