National Register of Historic Places, Washington, DC. Interagency Resources Div.
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 between May and July of 1863, was considered the most strategic battle of the Civil War, but it was 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, resources available, and information on planning a field trip. Activities in the guide have age group recommendations for K-12 and each section has supplemental classroom activities.
