On our ladies's trip last week we visited Vicksburg, where we took a two-hour driving audio tour of the Battle of Vicksburg battleground and cemetery. Then the next day we toured three antebellum homes in Natchez.
On Monday I read the novel, The Help. I highly recommend this book for a easy, quick book to read. I also was told that they have made this book into a movie that will be coming out this summer. In just these three events, I experienced the Civil War and the South from a totally different perspective.
