Vicksburg National Military Park

The website for the Vicksburg National Military Park can be reached by clicking on the above link.

The National Park Service has created quite a nice website for this battlefield, and some genealogical information is available on-line. A compiled list of Confederate soldiers who signed the parole after Pemberton's surrender is available.

It's quite an amazing website, and one that a history buff can spend hours investigating.

The following is a list of the Coffee/y Confederates defending at Vicksburg:
