American Queen Back In Town Last Friday

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I took this picture while coming down Jackson Street last Friday afternoon of the riverboat “American Queen” that was moored all day for passengers to tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Here are a few pictures of the Queen before her departure at 5:00 northbound to Greenville, MS.

This picture was taken at the floodwall of the American Queen while her passengers were getting back on board after touring our town.
Took this picture from behind and you can see a couple of train cabooses, The Old Depot Museum and the hills of Vicksburg.  To the far left is part of the landlocked M/V Mississippi IV & Museum.  

Looking behind the floodwall the Yazoo Diversion Canal is on the rise again from the Mississippi River.

Another picture of the passengers/tourist boarding the riverboat.
Two of four buses that take the passengers/tourist around to historic sites of Vicksburg.

Staff getting ready to leave taking up signs and a walking ramp that goes across the railroad tracks for the passengers.

After they untied all the ropes they will be ready to depart.

I took this picture from the Vicksburg Riverfront Park thinking the American Queen was going southbound but was going northbound to Greenville, MS.  I have an app called FINDSHIP and did not look at it the night before to see which way she was coming in.

    River stage at 6:00 p.m. 49.24 feet.  Flood stage is 43 feet.
