Donald Miller / VICKSBURG

Historian Donald Miller stops at Turnrow during the launch of his national tour for VICKSBURG: GRANT'S CAMPAIGN THAT BROKE THE CONFEDERACY.

This is the astonishing story of the longest and most decisive military campaign of the Civil War, which opened the Mississippi River, split the Confederacy, freed more than 100,000 slaves, sparked a social revolution, and made Grant the most important general of the war. Greenwood played a crucial role in the Vicksburg campaign, as detailed just this year in events we held with Mary Carol Miller and Larry Allen McCluney. 

Join us on Halloween as we welcome Donald Miller to Turnrow for the first time at 5:30 pm. Brief reception followed by speaking and signing. All of our events are free and open to all.
