This past weekend my husband and I took a little get a way trip to Vicksburg, Mississippi.
We wanted to visit the famous Civil War battlefield where Gen. Ulysses S. Grant captured the city after a six week siege.
Over 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers died in this battle.
The famous U.S.S Cairo was sunk in the battle and raised from the river 100 years later.
We learned some interesting facts in the Civil War Museum.
Ever wondered where this phrase came from?
Some things never change…only the price!
The Old Court House was built in 1858.
