Vicksburg has played such an important part in our nation's history if you do have the chance to visit you really should. The Civil War monuments, cemetery etc are all very well kept. Many parts of the town are like stepping back in time. This monument is very very well maintained and the surrounding are is very lovely

It sits majestically on a slight rise, as if overseeing the sacred ground which surrounds it. The... More

This was inside the National Military Park. It had quite a few steps to climb but nothing too demanding.

Every citizen owes it to their own history to experience this history. Such a well executed memorial to both sides and those citizens who endured that awful siege during such horrible times. The sacrifices on all fronts is difficult to comprehend without standing in the trenches, seeing the massive amount of dirt work that was done, the locations of the... More

A beautiful monument to those who Illinoisans who served at Vicksburg. The monument reminds me of both the Pantheon in Rome and the tomb of President William McKinley in Canton, Ohio.

You can see it from a distance, this National Monument, when you are driving on the tour road of the Military Museum. Stop and take the majestic stairs to the inside of this monument. Its impressive, beautiful and has a great view on the surrounding battlefields.
