Vicksburg March 27

It might have been 25F when I got up, but it was mid-sixties in the afternoon when I took a seven mile walk.  It was a really great day and we enjoyed talking to the people at the Lower Mississippi River Museum.  The city is no longer truly on the Mississippi.  One morning in 1876 the residents woke up to discover that the river had changed course overnight and left the city high and dry until the Army Corp of Engineers put in a new channel where our boat is docked.

The brand new Lower Mississippi River Museum is run by the Army Corp of Engineers.

Then we walked through town and I walked out to the National Military Park.
 I did not expect juncoes down here

And then back through town with lots of flowering dogwood.
