American Queen @ Vicksburg Waterfront

The American Queen was moored here all day in our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS, for their passengers to tour the Vicksburg National Military Park, Old Court House Museum, antebellum homes, churches, etc. The American Queen headed down the river at 5:00 this afternoon and the American Duchess will be here Friday.  When headed down river, the boats travel at 18 mph, which allows them to be here all day on Wednesdays. When headed up the river, they travel at 8 mph, which is why they are here for only a half day on Fridays. (River Level: 16.89 feet - Change: -0.29 foot - Flood Stage:  43 feet)
