General Sherman said of Ord, "As his intimate associate since boyhood, the General here bears testimony of him that a more unselfish, manly, and patriotic person never lived" He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
Across the roadway is the Vicksburg National Military Park Visitors Center.
Getting ready to go back under Clay St. to leave the park. It was a beautiful day for a walk in the park. I am fortunate to have lived my life in a town with hallowed ground that is well preserved for all our welcome visitors.
