Still standing

August 29, 2013  |  General, Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Still standing

There was a home in the center of the lines of Artillery that still stands today, slightly restored but its the original.. there was also some re-enactments going on during our trip including live canon shots that did not go over so well with the Dogs…however.. they are pretty happy in these shots with their mom!

Along the Auto tour the Union and Confederate lines are clearly marked and Gun Emplacements are still where they were…Here we walk along a small ridge line that provided the union forces a spot to lob artillery into the besieged Southern troops.

The Tour Drive takes you around 16 miles of both confederate and union lines at Vicksburg… The drive is lined with State markers for the troops from each state and busts of famous soldiers..

Our trip for the great River road started in Texas as it typically takes 2 days just to drive out of the state…( its big)… here we are north east of Austin in Tyler state park for a morning hike before the drive to Vicksburg.
