Southern Culture and Civil War itinerary
Beale Street, Memphis, Tennessee
Take a trip back in time to the Civil War on this riverboat cruise down the Southern Mississippi. Spend a night exploring rock and roll history in Memphis before embarking the stately and luxurious American Queen. Sail to Greenville, the heart of the Mississippi Delta and birthplace of blues legend B.B. King; and Vicksburg, site of the siege often considered the turning point of the Civil War. Tour Mississippi’s former capital city of Natchez before you enter Louisiana and explore the 140-plus historically registered buildings of St. Francisville. Dive into the Pelican State’s unique political history in the current capital of Baton Rouge before touring Nottoway, one of the South’s most magnificent plantation homes. Finally, disembark the American Queen at the mouth of the Mississippi River and revel in the unabashed and unapologetic joy of New Orleans.
