We landed in Jackson, Mississippi, yesterday to kick off our Facebook LIVE events from the Vicksburg campaign. Although we presented the campaign a little out of order, we wanted to take advantage of being there.
The sign at Battlefield Park explaining the action.
A little bit of spray on the UDC monument looks like the slash of a highlighter marking the dates of the war.
A pair of World War-era artillery pieces are placed at the park to represent the Confederate position. Confederates had four guns here during the (short) battle.
