Saw the video to get a "history" of the civil war and local battles. The diaramas are very detailed. Lots of war ship models. Staff was very friendly and most helpful.

This expansive display helped me better envision the geographical layout and features of the defense and seige of Vicksburg. Basically a simplified aerial view showing the extent of the fortifications...More
