Snow Days - Volume 1 Ranger Jim took a camera with him while closing down the park yesterday afternoon to capture images of the battlefield blanketed in snow. Here are a few shots from Redoubt Brannan, the only surviving interior earthwork of Fortress Rosecrans. We'd like to remind our local fans that sledding is not permitted in the park particularly on the historic earthworks.

Please enjoy this brief video of original footage of the raising of the U.S.S. Cairo. Vicksburg National Military Park would like to thank Jim Lancaster, of Dallas, TX, for providing us with this footage after recently coming across it himself. Jim is one of the young boys in the video. His father shot the footage in 1964. The U.S.S. Cairo is now on display at Vicksburg National Military Park. #FindYourPark

“Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what was seen during a moment.” – Carl Sandburg

The renovation and restoration of Carl Sandburg’s farm home, Connemara, began in November 2015. Contents of the house are expected to return in 2018, just before the 50th anniversary. Eastern National is proud to partner with the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site. Read about the renovation: ow.ly/X1mcF
