Ohio Memorial

Located 50 yards south of the Iowa Memorial is the monument to the 16th Ohio Battery of Artillery.  This monument is representative of the hundreds of unit memorials on the battlefield.  Vicksburg is a virtual gallery of the stone-cutter's art. Photo and narrative courtesy of Ed Conner, TN


(53rd Infantry) Rather than construct a single state memorial, Ohio choose to erect a memorial for each of the thirty-nine units that participated in the Vicksburg Campaign
