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

This is the Illinois Memorial to Their Troops…

It was such a gorgeous Round Memorial with 47 steps for the 47 days of the Vicksburg Seige. So much marble and carving… I was quite taken with it.

Especially loved the Gold Eagle on the Top!

Modeled after the Roman Pantheon, the Illinois Memorial was dedicated on October 26, 1906. There are 47 steps leading up to the entrance, one for each day of the Siege of Vicksburg. Inside are 60 bronze tablets listing the names of all 36,325 Illinois soldiers who participated in the Vicksburg Campaign.
