what do vicksburg and cairo have in common?

An impromptu stop at the Vicksburg National Military Park to take the driving tour and also see the USS Cairo Museum.

This was via TripAdvisor. They have an awesome iPhone app. One of the features is “near me now” and shows you everything to see and do in a 30 mile radius around you.

It was a beautiful day. A brief stop chock full of history. North & South. Learning about ironclads, reading gravestones, and taking pictures of a monument to Mississippi’s part in the great siege.

I love those kind of stops.
