Travel Theme: Gleaming (Vicksburg National Military Park)

On a gleaming sunny day in May, Himself and I visited Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi.  There are approximately 1300 monuments here... incredible pieces of sculpture and architecture.

This is the Minnesota Monument; which is made of granite and stands 90 feet tall.

Wisconsin infantryman monument.

"Cavalryman" statue

The Ulysses S Grant statue stands at the site of his battlefield headquarters.

The Rhode Island memorial.  This statue is of a soldier who has retrieved a fallen unit battle flag.
