We will be cleaning the park's historic War Department interpretive tablets. These tablets were written with the help of veterans of the Campaign and Siege of Vicksburg. The tablets tell of troop positions, troop movements, the history of the campaign and siege, and detail unit commanders as well as the number of soldiers killed and wounded.
Planned Low-Impact Activities
Tablet cleaning is appropriate for all ages and skill types.
History or Educational Activities
A short program about the significance of the tablets.
Should I bring any tools or supplies?
Water, closed-toe shoes, appropriate outdoor wear, and a face mask.
Is there a rain date?
