Vicksburg Expedition Guide
Annimated movie that details Grants Mississippi campaign which concluded with the seige of Vicksburg. A great background on the importance of this site in the entire war, as well as battles leading up to the Vicksburgh seige.

Watch as the Battle for Vicksburg Mississippi unfolds
Six Narrated interactive modules

Like other guides in this series, this set of audio and video CD's, along with the accompanying text, is an indespensible asset for those seriously trying to understand the battle that resulted in America's bloodiest day. Despite reading extensively about the battle, the automated and time-scaled troup movement maps helped me clearly grasp the scope and scale of the conflict better than ever before. Well worth the money for those contemplating more than a casual visit to this site, one of the best preserved of all civil war battlefields. Amazon Review
