Vicksburg 1998
Page 5
Vicksburg 1998 was a national event held at Raymond Mississippi on the original battleground.  The event was a campaign style event which means that you march and fight along the way.  The 1st and 7th Arkansas together participated in several actions during the weekend and marched about 6 miles.  The end of our march carried us through the streets of Raymond where large numbers of citizenrs came out and cheered the road weary troops and brought out food and drink for us as we marched by.  Many reenactors have said that this moment was one of the most emotional and moving they have experienced.
