Vicksburg - Natchez Trace Trip - October, 2006

We took a trip back to Vicksburg for the dedication of the flood wall mural of our high school, Carr Central.  There is another album that documents that event and a small class reunion (class of 1954) that was held at the same time.

We also visited relatives on both sides of the family and finally went down to Natchez and toured the entire Natchez Trace Parkway up to it's terminus near Franklin, Tennessee.  Betsy's grandfather, William Meacham, was a native of Franklin which is just 15 miles south of Nashville.  There are still Meacham's living there who probably are related but we ran out of time and didn't get a chance to inquire.   Franklin was the site of a horrendous Civil War battle and we did get a chance to tour some of the old homes, a museum and a cemetery to get some information on that historical event.  According to the local press that battle suffered more total casualties than the battle of Getteysburg.

The grave stone pictures of relatives were all taken at the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Vicksburg.  Considering the age of this facility it is a really big piece of real estate and includes an original Civil War Cemetery back toward the Civil War Battle Field area.

Many of the pictures have captions.
