Grand Gulf Historic Tour

The paddle wheel, frame, and part of the pump came from the wreck of the Confederate Transport Charm in the Big Black River.

The Charm, a 223-ton sidewheeler, was built in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1860. She was converted from a Yazoo River packet to a Confederate transport. She was conspicuous for bravery at the Battle of Belmont, Missouri, ferried troops across the Mississippi River to meet Grant's thrust down the Louisiana side of the river, and brought the big guns to Grand Gulf from the railroad bridge on the Big Black River.
