Vicksburg is commemorating its sesquicentennial of the Siege of Vicksburg and has lots planned for the upcoming year. Visit our Calendar of Events page for all the details! The Vicksburg Campaign was a pivotal turning point for the Civil War and even President Abraham Lincoln said that it was the "key" to victory for Union forces and that he wanted that "key" in his pocket. The rest is history.
