Missouri Memorial

Dedicated on October 17, 1917, the Missouri Memorial stands just south of the Stockade Redan at Tour Stop 10.  The Missouri Memorial is unique in that it is the only memorial in the park that honors the troops of both sides.  Missouri contributed 42 regiments to the Vicksburg Campaign; 27 Union and 15 Confederate. The memorial sits on the spot where two opposing Missouri units fought during the battle. Narrative by Ed Conner, TN
