I'm all set to do some traveling during my week off from teaching in February and will be flying into New Orleans.  I've volunteered to do some hurricane recovery work with Habitat for Humanity, but will also have 2-3 days for sight-seeing.  So, obviously, I want to visit the Vicksburg National Park (there's also a Petrified Forest area right nearby that I want to see).  I'll have time to drive around New Orleans and find sites related to Andrew Jackson, and I might have time to drive the coast from there into Alabama. 

Does anyone have any other knowledge of "must-see" history-related sites?  Does anyone know where Jeff Davis was from--was it Biloxi?  I forget.  Thanks
