Yesterday, was a beautiful day in Vicksburg and walkers and runners were out in droves in our Vicksburg National Military Park. Bob and I decided to get some ice cream and go for a short drive through the park. One of the stops was at the south loop where I got out and took some pictures at the Kentucky Monument. Since the last time that I visited this particular monument it has been upgraded with a new parking space and a nice walkway. I was surprised that it was so soft to walk on and never seen a walkway like this before. The Kentucky Monument depicts life size sculptures of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis. I hope you enjoy the snapshots that I took. To be continued...
You had to walk approximately 100 yards or more to get to the monument.
Sun was so bright that I took this picture from the backside.
Abe's top hat!
Jefferson Davis' hat!
Me in the shadow of two great men in history!
