  • Day7

    Baton Rouge, Louisiana

    March 29 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    Roger and Becky, you were right. You need a lot more than one day at the Vicksburg Battlefield - so we went back today.

    Historians call it the site of the Surrender Interview. So genteel sounding after so much carnage. General Grant sat down with General Pemberton to decide on the terms of surrender and that was that. Vicksburg now belonged to the Union.

    The fighting in and around Vicksburg took place in the spring of 1863 but in December of 1862 the USS Cairo - one of America's first ironclad warships - was steaming up the Yazoo River. Part of its mission was to destroy Confederate batteries. Suddenly, two explosions tore holes into the warship and it sank within minutes.

    No crewmember was injured!

    The Cairo was salvaged in the 1960's and Denny and I were able to WALK through her today.

    Silt, sand and mud preserved the Cairo and much of its contents - including many personal items belonging to the crew. All are on display at the USS Cairo Museum.

    10 South Rooftop Bar and Grill sits on top of the First National Bank and Trust Company in downtown Vicksburg. Great lunch with our MLB expert Nick. Loved the back of his T-Shirt. It told us to Put Some South In Your Mouth.

    So we did.

    Drove to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Watching Virginia Tech playing Duke.

    Go Hokies.

    Day 20 - To Vicksburg & then Arkansas

    June 30, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    We left camp by 7:15 and headed down the Natchez Trace Parkway toward Vicksburg and the Vicksburg National Battlefield Monument. After the informative orientation film we did the driving tour of the site including the USS Cairo, a Union ironclad salvaged in 1960. Excluding the grave headstones there have to be over 500+ monuments or markers at the battlefield site. Being from California it's easy to lose sight of how much the Civil War affected the rest of the country. Touring Vicksburg makes you understand. The USS Cairo is a pretty amazing piece of engineering, especially since she and and five other "City class" ironclads were built in 5 months.

    We headed out North then West through farm country to cross the muddy Mississippi into Arkansas. This whole area looks just like Clarsburg. We stopped at a visitor center to get a map and decide where to live for the night. We debated quite a bit and decided that Cane Creek State Park would work out. We made a few pit stops along the way. Set up camp as usual and headed into the close by town of Star City for a yummy dinner. Ribeye steak with fixins and drinks for $15 total. What a deal.

    On to Vicksburg

    March 28, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 64 °F

    We had hoped to spend Easter Sunday taking a long bike ride on the Longleaf Trace, a paved rails- to-trails multi use path, but ended up watching a movie at the local theater due to the never ending rain. Thank goodness today dawned sunny and warm for our drive to Vicksburg. After settling in at, the very nice, Ameristar Casino RV Park we spent the afternoon taking a walking tour through Historic Downtown Vicksburg, driving through Old neighborhoods and walking through casinos.Read more
