In light of Grant's initiative and Pemberton's hesitance to carry out Johnston's
order or abandon Vicksburg, Johnston was indeed too late.95 Partly because
Grant's spy network had advised him of Johnston's arrival and plans for
reinforcement, Grant did not hesitate to continue his expedited offensive.96
Because of Grant's concentration of force at Jackson, and despite torrential
downpours, his troops were able to drive the Confederates from Jackson in less

imposed on him by the Constitution “to take care that the laws be faithfully

I stayed and persevered because I believed in Lincoln University and had a
passion for HBCU institutions. After all, an HBCU institution, Jackson State
College, gave me my first chance to pursue my dream to attend college. My
mission at Lincoln University became clearer each day, and it was a mission that
I wanted to fulfill. The first semester at Lincoln was the most difficult. However,
months later, more members of the English department began to attend my

There's a 1928 concrete marker out front, and behind the museum are Wister's
cabin from Jackson Hole, transported as a Bicentennial project, and a petrified
wood monument to the writer built in 1939. From Medicine Bow west to Rawlins,
railbeds were again used by the original Lincoln Highway until a new gravel
grade was opened to the south in the early 19205. Counting 1931 and 1942
realignments that are north, there are four parallel generations of Lincoln
Highway/U.S. Route ...

modeled after the U.S. Constitution, all was ready for the expected arrival of
Davis on February 16. As Davis quickly prepared for a trip that would take him
from Jackson to Chattanooga to Atlanta and, finally, to Montgomery—traveling
nearly 700 miles to a city that was actually only 200 miles from Jackson (a sign of
the chaotic Southern rail system), Abraham Lincoln was saying goodbye to his
neighbors in ...
