No, it's not the first thing you learn about American history, not even the first about the Civil War. As for the Belgian that I am, I know that Vicksburg is a small city on the Mississippi river, but didn't know in which state it lies, and didn't know about the capture.

Yeah, as an American, I learned this during several years of Civil War history during elementary school. I'd hardly expect anyone who didn't go to school in America to know it.
