I am not usually this indecisive when it comes to my Civil War travel. And it is all I can think about while the weather is going haywire in Indiana and I am cooped up inside. I have a 4 day weekend from work over the Independence Day holiday. I am going to take one more day off for travel. I had kind of had it in my head that my next Civil War trip would be Wilson's Creek, Pea Ridge and Prairie Grove. I've been thinking about it since last June...well before I knew how my 2017 schedule would shake out. Now that I am going to take my trip over Independence Day, I can't get it out of my head that I should head to Vicksburg. I doubt I will have such a great opportunity to visit Vicksburg on an anniversary again. But I've already bought my background reading for a Trans-Mississippi trip and I am woefully uninformed about that theater. Sadly, I can't combine trips and leave my husband and son longer than 5 days, so the easiest solution is also not going to work. Hemming....hawing. So, for those of you have been to the aforementioned battlefields, what would you do? Has anyone been to an anniversary at Vicksburg (not one of the big anniversaries, just a run of the mill one)? What kind of programming does the park have? Thanks!
