A Rich Historic Experience on the American Queen Steamboat

Come sail the Mississippi and become immersed in Civil War-Era history. Experience the nostalgia evoked from rich American Civil War stories and learn about the soldiers who gave their lives and changed our nation forever. Start by flying into Memphis and visit an Elvis experience or acquaint yourself with famed eateries and shops as you settle in the first night. Your voyage will begin down the Mississippi Delta, passing through small towns where famous songs and American History books were written. You will stop in Vicksburg—a river port, where many famous Civil War battles were fought. Natchez’s charm and elegance make this sweet town a favorite stop for tourists. Baton Rouge’s historical museums, architecture, shops and cuisine mark this capital city as one of the most diverse river towns. Nestled on the bluff of the river banks is picturesque Quaint, St. Francisville, known as the town “two miles long and two yards wide”. Lastly, you will stop at the Nottoway Plantation, boasting the South’s most glorious antebellum mansion remaining. It’s surrounded by the natural beauty of gardens and 200-year-old oak trees. The plantation punctuates the brilliant blend of true Southern hospitality, its rich history and mysteries the South beholds.
