Geocache Description:

Need Help
Explore landmarks and downtown in Vicksburg, MS and find the micro cache (camo match holder). You might want to bring along a calculator if your GPS doesn't have one.

You will be required to visit several historical locations in Vicksburg, MS. I've arranged them in a logical geographic order. At each location, you will gather information which you will use to derive the coordinates for the next location. At the final destination (Location 6) you will find the cache, which is a camo waterproof match holder.

There are other caches in the area you can go for while you're working on this one...do a "All Nearby Caches" search to see what's available.

You can visit each location in sequence and be done in less than 30 minutes.

Your tour of Vicksburg begins at the listed coordinates: Location 1.
