Vicksburg National Military Park Licensed Guides

I wanted to post this for anyone who might be interested in becoming a licensed battlefield guide at the Vicksburg National Military Park. The park needs new guides, and they are hosting a series of seminars with the objective of producing licensed battlefield guides. The seminars begin in September 2008 and will be taught by retired General Parker Hills. There is no cost for attending the seminars, and everyone that successfully completes the course will be eligible to take part in three field trips led by Parker Hills to visit the battlefields and maneuver routes of the Vicksburg Campaign. For more information, contact Parker Hills at:, or you can click on the link.
