This guide seeks to help bring to life the human struggle that was endured in the Campaign for Vicksburg (Mississippi). The guide notes that the Campaign for Vicksburg, which took place from May to July of 1863, was considered the most strategic battle of the Civil War, but more than generals and maps, it featured the common soldier, sailor, and civilian who witnessed a lifetime in 47 days. The guide includes information about the park, the resources available, and planning a field trip. Activities in the guide have age group recommendations for K-12 and each section provides supplemental classroom activities. The guide is divided into the following sections and subsections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Banners of Glory"; (3) "Create Your Own Museum"; (4) "Design a Fort"; (5)"Expressions from the Past"; (6) "Messages"; (7) "Mural of the Siege"; (8) "Singing Soldiers"; (9) "Song Analysis"; (10) "Tour Guide Brochure"; (11) "What's My Habitat?" (12) "Woven Histories"; (13) "Wrap Up Activities"; (14) "Civil War Terms"; (15) "Read More About It"; (16) "And in the End"; and (17) "Evaluation." (Contains 57 references.) (BT)
