Cannons of the Vicksburg National Military Park

Here are some of my favorite photos of cannons in the Vicksburg National Military Park over the past few years. I think each and every one is glorious. What once were instruments of destruction are now monuments to a time of bitter divide in our country. May we learn from each of them.


  1. Like ranks of old retired soldiers, still ready, still on guard.

    Sculptures molded not for beauty, but beautiful nevertheless.

  2. I have no words, Marty. You and Rachel and your magnificent pictures have said it all.
