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.

Thank you for coming walkabout with me! I enjoy comments and will try to answer questions quickly if I have a way to reply to you. Sorry I have had to put the word verification back on... the spam jerks (especially the Serbian ones... yeh, I check your addys) have been overloading me lately.

However... I do not approve comments whose purpose is to spam. My readers do not deserve such garbage. I also do not allow anonymous comments. If you have something to say, then put your name to it.
