JOIN THE VLBGA

Membership in the Vicksburg Licensed Battlefield Guide Association is limited to those who have been certified by the Vicksburg National Military Park as guides, through the Park's examination and licensing process.

You don't have to be a member of VLBGA to be a licensed guide for the Vicksburg National Military Park.

But, as they say, membership has its privileges.  Dues are $25 a year.  

Our meetings are bimonthly during the non-summer months and feature interesting information from park officials and historians that strengthen the quality of our tours.

BECOME A GUIDE

To become a licensed Vicksburg Battlefield Guide, applicants must pass a very thorough written examination on the Civil War and, in particular, the campaigns and Siege of Vicksburg given by the Park team.

Those who pass the written exam must also pass an oral exam: an actual tour given to a park ranger or historian.

To help prepare candidates for the process, Vicksburg National Military Park provides prepared bibliographies, research materials, and a series of seminars over several months.

For more information, contact the Park.
