Each major Civil War battle site claims to be the pivotal battle. Vicksburg was important but the final outcome was anti-climatic. The whole area is ho-hum. The park is more of a place for each locality that sent troops to erect a memorial. It was...More

The drive through the park takes you first along the union lines and then through confederacy lines. The park is huge. There are monuments all along the way, and it's sobering to think of what it must have been like to wage battle here.

A beautiful display of a terrible event in the history of our country! No matter the "side" (Confederate or Union) one can "see" or imagine the battles and devastating loss of life on both sides!
