U. S. S. Cairo Museum – Mississippi Mondays

I’m backdating this to Monday as I thought it had posted, but WordPress decided it didn’t need to post on Monday. As part of Mississippi Mondays, I look at things related to Mississippi and found this one: https://www.nps.gov/vick/u-s-s-cairo-gunboat.htm. I haven’t been to the museum as the only time we visited and stopped in Vicksburg back in the 1970s on a road-trip, they had found the U. S. S. Cairo, but had not established the museum. Thanks to Ed Bearss for his dedication to finding the boat. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Historian Ed Bearss Throws Out First Pitch, the background at the top of my blog is from a photo I took on the day I heard Ed do a presentation. I visited the Vicksburg National Cemetery on the road-trip although we didn’t stay as long as I would have liked. It’s on my Bucket List to visit the museum.
