The park was established by Congress in 1899, to commemorate one of the most decisive battles of the American Civil War, the campaign, siege and defense of Vicksburg. It includes 1,325 historic monuments and markers, 20 miles of reconstructed trenches and earthworks, a 16 mile tour road, antebellum home, 144 emplaced cannons, the restored Union gunboat-USS Cairo, and the Vicksburg National Cemetery. The tour begins in the Visitor Center where you can see exhibits and artifacts from the Seige of Vicksburg and an 18-minute film. Although much can be enjoyed with a self-guided tour, we heartily recommend hiring one of the licensed professional park guides to ride with you. They share so many great stories and interesting facts of the war you will certainly have a greater appreciation and understanding of this important time in our history. To reserve a guide, call the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors' Bureau office at 601-636-0583, extension 8028.
