(3-2011) Enlarge Built by slave labor in 1858 it served for many years as the Warren County Court House. During the siege it dominated the Vicksburg skyline and from its portico Gen. Grant and his staff reviewed the victorious Union army following the surrender of the city. It is now the home of the Vicksburg and Warren County Historical Society and houses many Civil War artifacts. Federal prisoners were held in the Courtroom on the second floor. While Union shells exploded all around the building no substantial damage was done to it. It is a National Historical Landmark
