The architecture and tile work is beautiful. What truly touched me are the plaques on the wall with the names of the soldiers. Peaceful inside and the view is absolutely beautiful. It is a pretty good hike to the top but well worth it.

While traveling we took a side trip through the National Military Park. As we drove up to this monument, the steps were a little discouraging. Bu the steps were very easy to maneuver and it was well worth the climb!

This was definitely the highlight of the trip to Vicksburg. The architecture is stunning, and the overall presentation is awe inspiring. If you don't see anything else in Vicksburg, you need to see this.

I would recommend this tour to the young and old. It not only taught my grandson some things about our history but myself also. Very pleasant drive surrounded by so much history.

If you have read or studied the Civil War to any extent , this park is for you. I do recommend that before you visit you update yourself on the history of Vicksburg and the battle for Vicksburg. A great place to start is the civilwar.org website. It will mean much more to you as you ride through the park.... More

Stopped here while visiting the Vicksburg Military Park. The building is so beautiful and historic. The surrounding fields and area are also amazing. There's so much history on the inside walls of this beauty, don't miss out, especially if you are a history buff.

This monument was placed by the state of Illinois as a memorial. There is so much history here listed as names. Plus there is a hole at the top that makes this monument act like a giant megaphone. My children sang songs in here, and it sounded like thousands of people were singing. They wanted to go back again to... More
