Alabama Monument

The Alabama Monument in the Vicksburg National Military Park is one of the least appreciated monuments in the park. Many people don't take the time to go down the south loop to view it and that is their loss. I love this monument for the surprise it has in store for those who take the time to see it up close. Curious? Just go around to the back of the monument!


  1. I've always liked the Alabama monument, Marty, but have never seen the back side of it. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in the park (hopefully, soon! I'm waiting for it to cool off some).

  2. P.S. Your pictures are awesome, as usual.

  3. I really love the 3rd and 4th pictures...the detail is incredible! I am definitely going to go and check this out.
