Question regarding Military Park Monument

by Planner4031

My wife an I toured the Vicksburg Military Park two years ago. What a wonderful and touching tribute to the people who lived an dfought in that beautiful city.

We are from California and were traveling to visit military relatives in Biloxi MS. I am somewhat of a history buff and so we planned the visit to Vicksburg well in advance. As you enter the park-near the visitor center there is a monument that includes the names of the states that sent troops to fight there on behalf of the Confederacy. I was surprised to see "Maryland" on that monument. Can you provide any details about that, since Maryland was not truly part of the confederacy?

Thank you so much. We loved your city and the south in general. Hope to retire in the area in a few years.

Just a guess.
Maryland was a border state in the War between the States,I bet there were Union and Confederacy supporters in MD at that time. Slavery may have been legal in MD then too.
Maybe, they had a unit of volunteers who fought with the south.

Maryland did provide Confederate troops

by PR-7

Slavery was legal in Maryland in 1861. Many of its residents and politicians, including the mayor of Baltimore, were openly sympathetic to the Confederacy. When Union troops passed through Baltimore in 1861, a riot broke out against them. Although Maryland never officially seceded from the Union, some of its residents did form volunteer regiments to fight with the Confederacy.

Travel Tips for Vicksburg

Idea for a too well beaten path

by ocicat

When visiting the Vicksburg battle site, you can hire a guide to come with you. Local history buffs or college professors, they can bring the history alive for you. Their knowledge is wonderful and you'll learn things you would have otherwise missed.

The fee is $20 and they will be with you for about 2 hours.

One thing tho... they will be riding in your car with you. So you have to have room!!

Christ Church (Episcopal)

by keeweechic

This church is the oldest building for public assembly in Vicksburg. Bishop Leonidas Polk, who later became a Lt General in the Confederate Army, laid the cornerstone in 1839. During the siege of 1863, services were conducted daily in spite of the shellings. Many of the original furnishings are still in use in the four regular weekly worship services. The mid-nineteenth century house next door is still the home of the rector.

Old Administration Building

by keeweechic

This used to be the former Administration building, built in the late 1930s to serve as the National Park Service Visitor Centre. It was designed after an antebellum home in Natchez. Soon after it was opened however, the National Park Service realised that it was not actually placed along the designed tour road and so very few people visited the building. In the early 1980’s the building was vacated and fell into disrepair until the early 1990’s. It is now the office for the Rangers and a training facility and wellness center and storage.
