It was back in May-July, 1863 when we had the American Civil War - Battle of Vicksburg. I took these pictures yesterday at one of the overlooks and to the right you can see a cannon on a hill and the Ameristar Hotel in the background. Further down the hill to the left is the MS River and Ameristar Casino Boat where at one time was a battle with Union gunboats. It is hard to believe that we had a war here in my hometown. Horizon Casino Hotel is located on the Yazoo Diversion Canal downtown Vicksburg and Diamond Jacks, Riverwalk and Rainbow Hotel Casinos line the embankments of the MS River at Vicksburg. What a contrast it is today!
