The Vanishing Glory's photos have been updated using digital technology.  The story is shown above the Fall of Dixie Diorama on a continuous loop.

The riveting story captures the dress, worries, and challenges of daily life during the 47-day Siege, when people often lived in caves and dined on peas and rats.

Diaries, letters and other accounts help you sense the fatigue, uncertainty and undying bravery and courage of people on both sides of the trenches.

"One of the caves had a section of the roof missing, blown away by the shelling. The other cave was furnished with a book case and came complete with four shutters to be placed over the opening for protection from the shelling."

You will never forget the people you meet in front of and behind the lines at Vicksburg.
