The City of Vicksburg is the only city in Warren County. Vicksburg houses over 26,000 citizens in its city limits and nearly 50,000 people live in the surrounding area. Vicksburg was first incorporated in 1825 and is well-known for its pivotal role in the Civil War. The fall of Vicksburg occurred after a forty (40) day siege that is called a major turning point in the Civil War. The Confederate Armies at Vicksburg surrendered on July 4th, 1863. For that reason the City of Vicksburg refused to celebrate July 4th for many years after the Civil War.
Vicksburg is famous for its National Military Park, the annual Miss Mississippi Pageant, and for being recognized as the first place where Coca-Cola was bottled. Vicksburg is also proud to be the home of Delmon and Dmitri Young, brothers who play Major League Baseball.
Gaming is a huge source of revenue for the city of Vicksburg. Being situated on the Mississippi River allows Vicksburg to have riverboat casinos and there are plenty lining the river for tourists to enjoy.
Citizens of Vicksburg send their children to schools run by the Vicksburg-Warren School District. Both Vicksburg High School and Warren Central High School are located in the area. The City also has several good quality, private Catholic Schools. Attorney Paul Winfield is the current mayor of Vicksburg.
The Vicksburg Municipal Court and Vicksburg Police Department is located at 820 Veto Street. Vicksburg is also the home to the Warren County Circuit Court, the Warren County Chancery Court, and the Warren County Justice Court. Vicksburg is unique in that the city holds people charged with a crime in their downtown jail prior to appearing before the Court.
