Vicksburg National Military Park preserves the Civil War Battle of Vicksburg that ended with the 47 day siege of Vicksburg. The 116 acre Vicksburg National Cemetery is located within the park. There is also a unit of the park that preserves a portion of Grant’s Canal, an attempt near Delta, LA started in June 1862 to allow ships to bypass the guns of Vicksburg and avoid the battle.
