Despite the fact that the Ninth Regiment Connecticut Volunteers
were not allowed to place any memorial
at Vicksburg until recently, a monument honoring the Regiment was placed in New Haven in 1903.
Later that same year Massachusetts placed the first state Monument at the newly created Vicksburg
National Military Park.
Each year around Veteran's Day a wreath is placed at the Ninth's Regient Connecticut Volunteers
monument in New Haven. A description of the New Haven monument is as follows:
