Hit the road with Chicago Movie Tours! This virtual walking tour takes you to 3 locations in historic Vicksburg, MS:

  1. First, you'll explore the Mississippi River and magnolia trees at sunset.
  2. Then, you'll see where O Brother, Where Art Thou? filmed its baptism scene, which was backed by a singer and fiddle player from Champaign, IL.
  3. Finally, you'll encounter the largest structure in Vicksburg National Military Park — the Illinois Memorial — as you learn about The Crisis, an ambitious Chicago-based movie filmed inside the Park in 1916.
