Artist's Description

This is at the Vicksburg Battlefield…


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!
