" I went on the Mississippi Sweet Tea Tour today.These pictures are of the Beulah Cemetery. The only African American cemetery being restored dating back to 1884.. An informative tour while enjoying the stories told by Vicksburgs very own, Cathy,the tour guide. I highly recommend this for fun while learning about Vicksburgs history .From the blues started here , post Civil War stories, and what African Americans endured during those turbulent times. Thank you Cathy for giving the untold history of Vicksburg in such an interesting way. " Peggy S.
