The views leading up to the monument are breathtaking. So well perserved. On any day expect beautiful photos. Take plenty of water.

While touring the park on a very hot and humid June day, we debated on getting out and climbing the stairs to see the monument. We did it and were so glad. It is a beautiful tribute to the many lives lost at the battlefield.

Too many steps for us to tackle but a fitting tribute to the siege of Vicksburg. It needs to be viewed in correlation with the military park

There are 45 steps up to the monument which overlooks a large area of the park. The inside of the monument list each person who fought in the battles in Vicksburg. Kids also love the echo the monument makes from the inside.
