The Queen of the Mississippi showed up at our waterfront today with her passengers to spend the whole day touring our Civil War town of Vicksburg, MS. Pictures were taken around 5:00 when most of the passengers were boarding to leave at 5:30 for more ports of call on the Mighty Mississippi River. Tomorrow. the luxurious American Queen and America will be docked for a full day of touring our town as well Tourism is so great for Vicksburg because we have so much to offer with the main attractions being the Vicksburg National Military Park/Cemetery/Battleground, Old Court House Museum, churches, antebellum homes and much more.
I took this picture of the Queen of the Mississippi while departing. You can also see some of the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall which is another unique attraction to our city by renowned artist Robert Dafford.
