the cairo

More pix of the Cairo.  The  Cairo is a restored paddlewheel boat that was sunk in the Mississippi River during the civil war.  The boat sits in a covered display area in the National Military Park down by the river.  It has it's own museum which is filled with artifacts recovered from the wreckage site nearby.  While you are visiting the Vicksburg National Military Park, take some time to see the Cairo.
