as I leave

I am leaving Vicksburg after two weeks of visiting friends and spending some quality time doing pretty much nothing.  Although there is a very large national park within the city limits dedicated to the Siege of Vicksburg (1863), there are also many monuments commemorating the various infantry battalions scattered around the town, some in unexpected places like medians, dead end streets and, of course, the mall.  

The entire city is a living memorial to all of those brave soldiers who came together in battle so many years ago and if you keep your eyes open as you drive around Vicksburg you will find something special dedicated to all of them.
