Today we spent several hours sightseeing in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Most of that time was spent at the Vicksburg National Military Park to learn about the Civil War campaign and siege of 1863, but some of the time was spent driving through downtown Vicksburg to take a look at the city.

Tomorrow morning we’ll depart Vicksburg and make the 6 hour drive across Louisiana and east Texas, to Dallas. On the following day, we’ll fly home.
