Artist's Description


THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT, OR AS WE MISSED IT

This section was shot at the WISCONSIN Memorial, located within the Vicksburg National Military Park…

The Vicksburg Seige National Park offers a driving road tour of the entire area of the battle. The route took us by may interesting Memorials high in the Hills of Vicksburg, overlooking the Mississippi…

LOOKING UP… THE STATUE IS ON THE LEFT

LOOKING DOWN… :)))))
After I took my shots of the Statue, I turned and snapped looking down… :))))

*FROM WIKEPEDIA:

*Campaign: Grant’s Operations against Vicksburg (1863)

Date(s): May 18-July 4, 1863

Principal Commanders: Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant [US]; Lt. Gen. John C. Pemberton [CS]

Forces Engaged: Army of the Tennessee [US]; Army of Vicksburg [CS]

Estimated Casualties: 19,233 total (US 10,142; CS 9,091)

Description: In May and June of 1863, Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant’s armies converged on Vicksburg, investing the city and entrapping a Confederate army under Lt. Gen. John Pemberton. On July 4, Vicksburg surrendered after prolonged siege operations. This was the culmination of one of the most brilliant military campaigns of the war. With the loss of Pemberton’s army and this vital stronghold on the Mississippi, the Confederacy was effectively split in half. Grant’s successes in the West boosted his reputation, leading ultimately to his appointment as General-in-Chief of the Union armies.

Result(s): Union victory *
