The city of Vicksburg was dubbed the ''key'' to victory and was a symbol of Southern hope for independence. Vicksburg held loads of Confederate artillery, and the river gave the Confederate army a chance to cut off commerce heading north. When Vicksburg fell to the Union Army on July 4, 1863, the fate of the Civil War was decided. Your purchase helps support the National Park Service mission of preserving landscapes and vistas like Vicksburg National Military Park for future generations of Americans.
