The mighty Mississippi River is your pathway on a journey through one of the most tumultuous eras in American history, the Civil War. On a Civil War-themed river cruise, onboard lectures provide in-depth insight as you sail, while re-enactors, impersonators and balladeers bring history to life. Shore excursions are designed both to entertain and to increase understanding of this turning point in the nation's history. Highlights might include visits to major Civil War sites such as Vicksburg and Chattanooga, as well as a trip to Shiloh National Military Park that includes interactive interpretive exhibits.
Along with entertainment and sightseeing tailored to Civil War history, you'll also enjoy delicious cuisine and upscale accommodations, all included in the upfront price.
