Battlefield

Much of our activity is to preserve the battlefield where the Battle of Raymond was fought on May 12, 1863 as part of General Grant’s campaign to capture Vicksburg. We sponsor events such as reenactments and the annual pilgrimage to promote the history of Raymond, and we have purchased and maintain over 100 acres of the original battlefield. We welcome continuing and new members, so join us in 2013!
