Anyway, Vicksburg is a truly interesting town with some quaint and beautiful old buildings. One that we took the time to stop at today was The Old Courthouse which, built in 1858, stands today as Vicksburg’s most historic structure and has hosted such guests and speakers as Jefferson Davis, Ulysses S.
