The Mississippi River has played an important role in the history of Vicksburg and continues to be an important draw for locals and visitors alike. During the Civil War, Union troops fought a protracted siege to wrest control of this strategic point from the Confederacy. The Union victory at Vicksburg became one of the turning points of the war and today visitors can explore the history of the battle at the Vicksburg National Military Park, which hosts over 1,300 monuments as well as the remains of an actual Civil War-era gunboat, the U.S.S. Cairo. Those looking to experience the Mississippi River for themselves can take a tour on a river boat and view the public riverfront murals along the Yazoo Diversion Canal. After exploring the area attractions, Vicksburg is just minutes away from the great Mississippi outdoors, including camping, golfing and recreational activities.
