Contact: Melissa Perez, 601-636-0583
Most of us have studied history in school, but how many can claim that they have actually lived history? Learned how to fire a cannon? Marched a rifle drill? Eaten Hard Tack and Johnny Cakes? A Junior Ranger can! Vicksburg National Military Park invites children to discover the fascinating history of the region by attending the annual Junior Ranger Summer Camp. This year's camp will take place July 16-20, 2012, from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. each day.

President Abraham Lincoln, in speaking of Vicksburg's importance, is reputed to have stated early during the Civil War, "See what a lot of land these fellows hold, of which Vicksburg is the key, the war can never be brought to a close until that key is in our pocket."
