    Excerpt from Michigan at Vicksburg: Published Pursuant to a Concurrent Resolution of the Michigan Legislature, April 11th, 1917

    Vicksburg is located on the Yazoo and on the Mississippi rivers about half way between Memphis and New Orleans. Until 1876 it was wholly on the Mississippi, the river previous to that time making a bend that formed a tongue of land opposite the city, the stream rounding the end of this tongue about two miles above the city. In the year mentioned the river cut across the base of this tongue making an island of it, and relegating to the'old channel only the back waters of the stream. Thus was formed What was called Lake Centennial. The waters of which, as a rule insufficient for steamboat purposes, became the only ones that laved the city's once busy levee. In recent years, how ever, the United States Government cut a canal from the Yazoo river across to the upper end of the old channel, dammed the west outlet to Lake Centennial, and let the waters of the Yazoo through the old channel, thus restoring a river front to the heart of the city. From the main road in the southern part of the city, which road skirts the river along the high bluff overlooking the surrounding country, the tourist not only has a fine scenic attrae tion before him, but a particularly clear panorama of this inter esting feature of Vicksburg's relation to the waters mentioned. It is one of the show features of the place.
