Vicksburg is a city in west central Mississippi. The city is most famous as the -Gibraltar of the Confederacy- as cannons on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River prevented the US from controlling this vital water route during much of the American Civil War.

After lengthy maneuverings to get troops to the city, U.S. Major General Ulysses S. Grant, having failed in a major assualt on May 22, 1863, put the city under siege.

The siege lasted until July 4 when C.S. Lieutenant General John C. Pemberton surrendered. Along with the Confederate defeat at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania the previous day, this marked the turning point of the war.

In addition to the battlefield, the major draw for todays visitors is the collection of river boat casinos.

It is the only city in Warren County. It is located 234 miles (377 km) northwest of New Orleans on the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers, and 40 miles (65 km) due west of Jackson, the state capital.
