Sunday Drive In Vicksburg National Military Park & Cane

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Yesterday, two of my daughters came to visit me from Magee, MS and toured our Vicksburg National Military Park.  Above is a picture I took of the top of the Illinois Memorial.  The structure was modeled after Rome’s Temple of Mineva and the Pantheon.  The memorial was dedicated on October 26, 1906.

Two of my four daughters with Debra Ann (Debi) and Theresa Marie (Teri).  Kathy lives in North Carolina now and Suzi in Virginia.

Took this picture at the base of the steps before we left.  There are 47 steps to the rotunda which is one step for each day of the Vicksburg siege during the Civil War. 

We accidentally came upon a cane forest between the Illinois Memorial and the Louisiana Memorial.  I have always heard about the canes but this is the first time I was able to see and walk through it and take pictures.  It was so magical.

What a great ending to a nice Sunday’s visit with my daughters, and to find a magical cane forest too in our historic Vicksburg National Military Park.
