This Secret Tunnel Played A Huge Role In Mississippi’s History
The site of one of the Civil War’s bloodiest battles, the Vicksburg National Military Park was established in 1899 in order to commemorate the siege and defense of Vicksburg. Today, the park is filled with hundreds of monuments and markers, historic homes, forts, and approaches, including Thayer’s Approach. The historic tunnel was vital to the Union and, in turn, the nation as a whole; however, many are unaware of its existence.
Want to see this historic tunnel for yourself? Thayer’s Approach is located at tour stop #6 at the Vicksburg National Military Park. For more information, click here.
