Mississippi Delta Delta
Many barges shipping products to many ports.
Now we appreciate this mighty waterway by cruising it on a ship from New Orleans to Memphis Tennessee. It was a great trip. I'm glad we made the journey. We visited a Civil War museum in New Orleans and we visited Vicksburg Battle ground with memorials to the fallen soldiers both North and South. We learned how Grant won a decisive victory for the Union by calling a siege. We saw iron clad battle ships with their canons that had been retrieved from the bottom of the Mississippi.
I had crayfish pie, shrimp, and seafood stew as well as many Southern specialties such as okra and spicy Cajun cooking.
