Vicksburg National Military Park is proud to present music, songs, and speeches – along with crafts and handiwork of the period – in their first signature Sesquicentennial event: The Vicksburg Civil War Heritage Fair, on Friday, April 5th, Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7, 2013.
The Fair will all be held in historic downtown Vicksburg at the park’s Pemberton’s Headquarters, the Old Courthouse, and the Southern Cultural Heritage Center. In addition to the performances, presentations and demonstrations offered, Pemberton’s Headquarters will be open to the public all day on Saturday, April 6th; and two free walking tours of the historic neighborhood will be given at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm that day by Vicksburg National Military Park Licensed Battlefield Guides.
The 2nd South Carolina String Band will be giving three separate performances: In the morning, 11am, at the Auditorium of the Southern Cultural Heritage Center; in the afternoon at 2pm, at Pemberton’s Headquarters; and again in the evening, as part of a larger program, from 8:20pm to 9:10pm.
