Vacation #2: Margaret’s Grocery, Vicksburg, MS

One of the things I did in Mississippi was go up to Vicksburg for a day, I’d never been and it’s only 90 minutes from Natchez. It’s mostly famous nowadays for its Civil War battlefield, but I’ve never been particularly enamored of that aspect of the south. I’m a westerner by birth and upbringing, and frankly I think the south would be a lot better off if everyone down here could quit harping on something that happened before their great-grandparents were born.

This structure is north of the town, it used to be a grocery store that the owners turned into a weird folk art installation. Sadly, they have both died and it’s now kind of falling apart.
