Pemberton's Headquarters, also known as Willis-Cowan House, is a two-story brick house that served as the headquarters for Confederate General John C. Pemberton during most of the 47-day siege of Vicksburg, and the site where he decided to surrender the city to Union General Ulysses S. Grant on July 4, 1863.
During the 1960s the building housed a kindergarten associated with Vicksburg Catholic School (St. Francis Xavier Academy Kindergarten).
