Travel Tips for Vicksburg

The Shirley House, Vicksburg National Military Pk

by leafmcgowan

In ruins when the Park was first established in 1899; it was restored in 1902, it still remains a hollow shell waiting to be restored again today. Built in the late 1830's by Nicholas Gray and named the "Wexford Lodge" in honor of his native county in Ireland. During the Civil War it was home to Judge James and Adeline Shirley where it got its current knickname of "The Shirley House".Although the Shirley's were of Northern Birth, their three children: Frederick, Alice, and Quincy were all born in Vicksburg. They owned 25 slaves and made the Wexford Lodge the center of a successful farm. Upon succession of the Mississippi, the Shirleys who remained ardent supporters of the Union, kept to themselves for safety. During the Sieze of Vicksburg, the building was the most conspicious structure on the battlefield and soldiers in blue and gray referred to it simply as "The White House". The Shirley family were forced from their home during the sieze as the house was riddled by solid shot and shell. They fled first to a cave located in the ravine to the right of the house, then to an empty slave cabin several miles away. The house was later converted by the Union army as a smallpox hospital. In 1864 it was abandoned altogether. The building was so badly damaged during the sieze that the family never occupied its rooms again. Purchased by the government for inclusion in the park it was restored to its original splendor and used by park staff and as headquarters. Vacant since the mid 60's, it has fallen once again in disrepair.

The Old Courthouse

by keeweechic

This is Vicksburg's most historic building which was constructed by slaves in 1858. It has hosted great Americans such as Jefferson Davis, Theodore Roosevelt, John Breckinridge, Booker T. Washington, William McKinley, and U.S. Grant. The U.S. Flag was raised and the Confederate lowered on July 4, 1863. The artefacts within this National Landmark help tell Vicksburg's past. There is also a gift shop.
