‪For a Civil War historian, following the Vicksburg Campaign Trail in Mississippi is similar to following Lee's Retreat from Petersburg to Appomattox in Virginia. In 1863, General Ulysses S. Grant spent months trying to find a way to seize Vicksburg and sever the Confederates' control of the Mississippi River. Attempts to bypass Confederate defenses at Grand Gulf and the Yazoo River, to the north of Vicksburg, failed miserably. He even tried to build a canal to open a better navigational route to the city. The canal flooded. Finally, Grant decided to march his army south along the west side of the Mississippi River, cross at Bruinsburg, west of Port Gibson, then proceed to Jackson, the state capitol, and approach Vicksburg from the east. So the Vicksburg Campaign Trail takes travelers from Port Gibson to Jackson to Raymond to Champion Hill to the Big Black River and finally to Vicksburg, where you can take a 16-mile tour of Vicksburg Military Park. The trail is well documented through thousands of historical monuments and markers. One of the most interesting stops in the park is at Shirley House, the only surviving wartime structure. Of all the monuments to the soldiers who participated in the 47-day siege, the Illinois monument is most impressive.‬

‪Not sure how you can leave anything but a five for monuments. They all honor a group or person and that should be enough for a five.

‪Vicksburg National Park is beautiful, sad yet inspiring in so many ways. To tell you all the things to see and read would take pages of writing. As you drive through the park and see the monuments to those who fought there. The monuments are just breathtaking. The Illinois monument is incredible! Every American needs to visit this Park.‬

‪If you have an interest in the war between the states, this tour is a must. The grounds and monuments are in great shape and the signage is excellent, which makes it easy to visualize the events of the battles taking place there. A must see is the "Cairo" Yankee Gunboat museum & reclamation from the river bottom. Unless you have a National Park Pass, there is a $20 charge to drive through the park trails. (It is worth it just for the demonstrations and grounds upkeep.‬

‪When my wife and I realized we could take a self-guided, audio driving tour of the Vicksburg Campaign Trail, we leaped at the opportunity. It reminded us of the self-guided, audio driving tour of Lee's Retreat in Virginia, from Petersburg to Appomattox, that we have enjoyed in the past. The Vicksburg Campaign consisted of many naval operations, troop maneuvers, failed initiatives and 11 distinct battles from December 26, 1862 to July 4, 1863. After Union General U.S. Grant failed to take Vicksburg by attacking through the bayous north of the city, he marched his army south along the west side of the Mississippi River and met Union gunboats and troop transports (which had run the batteries at Vicksburg) at Bruinsburg, where he crossed the river. In the next 17 days, Grant maneuvered his army inland and won five battles at Grand Gulf, Snyder's Bluff, Port Gibson, Raymond and Champion Hill, seized the state capital at Jackson and assaulted and laid siege to Vicksburg, which surrendered after a 47-day siege. We followed Grant's route, from Windsor Ruins, near Bruinsburg, to Shaifer House to Snyder's Bluff to Port Gibson to Grand Gulf to Jackson to Raymond to Champion Hill to the Big Black River to Vicksburg and the very spot where Grant met Confederate General John Pemberton to discuss surrender terms.‬

‪While at the Military park one should make a stop at all the stunning monuments, they each are so lovely‬

‪A beautiful drive through the park. It can be walked or biked but it was raining so we chose to drive. Very informative. My husband and I thought we knew just about everything on the civil war but we learned even more. The monuments dedicated by the states to their fallen were very moving. ‬

‪Each State either North or South have added their memorial , big or small or bigger to their combatants and it is a really moving tribute when you think of the animosity that existed back then ! A very well done National Park & the NPS as usual do a great job, Enjoy as we did !!‬

‪Give yourself at least 3 hours to drive around, stop and view the sights. Read each sign to learn more and if you bought the CD tour, get insight to what happened at each major stop.‬
