Surrender at Vicksburg, Miss., on July 4, 1863, coupled with the fall of Port Hudson, La., and Robert E. Lee’s loss at Gettysburg, Pa., signaled the beginning of the end of the Confederacy and the Civil War. With the fall of Vicksburg, Maj. General Ulysses S. Grant accomplished one of the most successful military victories in history. The set includes one uncirculated Vicksburg National Military Park quarter each from the United States Mint at Philadelphia and Denver, as well as a proof quarter from the United States Mint at San Francisco. Order today and learn about the history of Vicksburg!.
