Must see if visiting the Vicksburg Battlefield/Historic Vicksburg. Battlefield National Park “museum” itself has nothing (1 small room with a few little artifacts). Old Court house has SO many artifacts and displays, and really helps provide lots of information and understanding in the history for both the Seige and the town. You really cannot get the big picture without going to the Old Courthouse.

The Old Warren County Court House, built in 1858, stands today as Vicksburg’s most historic structure and has hosted such guests and speakers as Jefferson Davis, Ulysses S. Grant, Booker T. Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, and William McKinley. During the Civil War, the building was one of the main targets in Vicksburg. As hard as the Union tried, the building suffered only one major hit. After a 47-day siege, on July 4, 1863, the Stars and Bars were lowered and the Stars and Stripes were raised.

Wonderful place. Well kept and maintained. Fairly exhaustive collection of regional artifacts.
