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.

The walk up all those steps is worth the view! I thought this monument and the Cairo were very cool sites. Take the time to check them out!

I'm very interested in the Civil War and have been to most of the Civil War parks. The visitor center has a good film on the siege and surrender but, the visitor center is very small. The park has a nice driving tour with lots of monuments but lacks trails. The best part of the park is the USS Cairo and it is not to be missed.

You could spend a full time seeing all the battlefields and memorials. The USS Cario is the best part, amazing to see the remains of the boat.

Incredible the long list of soldiers that died in this battle. The cost of the building was and still being for me ridiculous I will give all that money to the family of all those man that died for the great cause but death. And sure they didn't get nothing
