What a treasure in the heart of Vicksburg! The collection of historical pieces and their presentation is so educational and interesting. For me, the walk through the old second floor courtroom is priceless. It is totally original, unmolested, and you stand there imagining Jefferson Davis is there when he filed suit to recover his estate taken by the Yankees. A... 更多

A very interesting Museum, charting the Civil War and the area demographics. Interesting display of uniforms, flags and furniture from the era
Built in the 1850s, many famous Americans have spoken in the large court room that is in the upper floor, reached by an incredibly steep set of stairs. The cupola that adorns the courthouse was used by Confederates to observe the river and the adjacent heights during the Civil War when federal troops under U.S. Grant tried to take Vicksburg.... 更多
