New Monument at Vicksburg Battlefield

This Wed. I went to the state armory to view the unvieling of the center panel of the monument. It was beautiful, and a very moving ceremony. The below website has some basic info, including close ups of the etchings that were done on the granite by a local artist.
Nice to know that all these years late, their efforts are still remembered.

And yes you are right; it is wonderful that people still care and do something to remember them after ALL this time.
