An important part of the Vicksburg campaign. And a surprise on our trip. Would suggest trim trimming the trees to allow a more historical view from the battery and view of point of rocks

the site is actually pretty important for the civil war but there is not a whole lot of information about it or what actually went on here. It's just a bunch of buildings with some info and a campground. Could be so much more.

We accidentally found this park by reading the road signs; so glad we stopped! Many historical artifacts! It is self guided so you can do as little or much as you choose.
