K. There is a visitor centre at Vicksburg's National Military Park where they show a film about the famous siege, then you take a coach with a guide around the battlefield which is laid out with original confederate and union ordnance. Also on the site is the raised union ironclad "hunley".

P. We did the Gracelands, Tupelo and Sun Studios tours and finished up at the Mardi Gras in The Big Easy.
