The American Battlefield Trust has made its foray into Minecraft, presenting a stunning reconstruction of the bloody and arduous siege of Vicksburg, a battle pivotal to the Union victory in the American Civil War. The project "The Battle of Vicksburg" is the result of a year of development and contributions from more than 30 builders, modelers, and developers. Not only is the town beautifully crafted on handcrafted terrain, it is also populated with fully voice-acted NPCs, including historical figures like Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain.
If you’re interested in going back in time block-style to a beautiful and historical town in the history of the US, you can join the battle from Nov. 11, 2022, to Nov. 16 at 6 PM EST. All proceeds go to the American Battlefield Trust and their mission to preserve historic sites across the United States. You can find more information and donate through the event’s campaign on Tiltify.
