Vicksburgh Township is on the Jewell/Republic County line, just north of Allen Township and south of Grant Township. “Vicksburgh” was the spelling of the township in the early history of Jewell County just as it was the spelling of the early town of Vicksburgh. The town of Vicksburgh was not in Vicksburgh Township but rather was in Allen Township. Now the township’s name is Vicksburg and the town no longer exists.
