July 4 in Vicksburg

Last year, when I was reading a little about Vicksburg, Mississippi re the singing we visited over there, I found that until 1944, the city of Vicksburg did not celebrate Independence Day. Why?

By the way, we attended this year's singing in Vicksburg held at the Old County Court House. It was well attended and we had a good singing from the 1991 and 2006 Sacred Harps and the 2002 Christian Harmony.

Vicksburg surrendered on July 4, 1863. Under the terms they stacked their rifles and went home.
