The battle of Vicksburg was one of the most important in the US Civil War. When I visited the park it was very foggy and dreary. At first I was disappointed, then I understood how appropriate that was for such a sad and low point in our history. The park is laid out to show where different units were located during the fighting. There are inumerable monuments throughout the park dedicated to specific units and individuals and to the states involved. One of the most impressive monuments, and probably the most photographed, is the Iliinois Monument. Other highlights include the USS Cairo complete with a museum, and the National Cemetery (for more information and pictures, see my page).
