Most People Have No Idea The Unique Thayer’s Approach Tunnel In Mississippi Exists

There aren’t many tunnels in Mississippi. There is one very unique tunnel, though, and it’s known as Thayer’s Approach. Nestled in the Vicksburg National Military Park, the tiny tunnel might not look like much, but it was actually vital to Union forces during the Civil War.

You can find more info on Thayer’s Approach as well as other points of interest in the Vicksburg National Military Park, on the NPS website.

This isn’t the only hidden historic relic in Mississippi. There’s also this antique boxcar, otherwise known as the Merci Train.

Address: Vicksburg National Military Park, 3201 Clay St, Vicksburg, MS 39183, USA
