It was an unusual event when the two men met on May 22, 1937, at the surrender monument in the Vicksburg National Military Park and clasped hands. On the left is John C. Pemberton III, and on the right is Col. U.S. Grant III, the grandsons of the top generals in the Siege of Vicksburg. The photo, a post card, is from the Old Court House Museum collection.

Historic photos taken in and around Vicksburg are featured on Sundays in The Vicksburg Post. Many of the photos are from the J. Mack Moore Collection at the Old Court House Museum. Though not all photos were taken by Mr. Moore, they are part of the collection given to the museum by longtime Vicksburg Post managing editor Charles J. Faulk. Appropriate photos from the public will also be accepted and published. To submit a photo, contact Karen Gamble at 636-4545.
