Yesterday, I visited our Vicksburg National Cemetery that holds the final resting place, with dignity, of 17,000 Union servicemen - more than any other national cemetery - and about 1,000 veterans of other U. S. conflicts. Also, pictures of the ironclad USS Cario being visited by the passengers from the Queen of the Mississippi riverboat. Lastly, I took a picture on Fort Hill looking down at the Yazoo River (Diversion Canal) and the Port of Vicksburg to the right.

Today, the American Duchess came to visit our historic town. To my surprise when I got to town there was no riverboat at the waterfront. A gentleman was checking out the murals with his wife and said it was docked further down the canal. I have never seen this happen before, so it must be a reason for it.
