Description

Vicksburg, situated on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, has played an important role in the state s history, from its heroic participation in the War Between the States to its continued contributions to Mississippi s churches, architecture, cotton farming, and industrial markets. Today a modern city, Vicksburg still embraces its Southern charm with its shady, tree-lined brick streets, well-kept historic buildings, and beautiful plantation homes. In this volume of over 200 images, you will experience Vicksburg as never before, viewing this fascinating river town throughout its years of growth and progress. Within these pages, the reader can trace the evolution of the scattered farms that evolved into plantations and the small trading posts that became successful mercantile establishments. Vicksburg brings to life many of the old ways: scenes of Catfish Row, where steamboats docked and laughter emanated from the waterfront shanties; images of famous actors who gave routine performances in the elegant Walnut Street Opera House; snapshots capturing the excitement of outdoor baptisms, parades, and political rallies; magnificent scenes of the Old Court House, the proud symbol of Vicksburg for over a century; and pictures and portraits of the soldiers, merchants, government officials, and everyday citizens who have called Vicksburg home."
