The above site ( to the left of the walkway ) has been selected as the location for the Connecticut Monument.

Vicksburg National Military Park


Legislation passed in the 1990s authorized the National Park Service to accept title to the Grants Canal tract
for inclusion in the Vicksburg National Military park. The legislation also expanded the park's interpretive
mission to encompass the time period from April 1862 to July 4th 1863. Consequently the state of Connecticut is
permitted to place a monument on the grounds of the park to honor the gallant soldiers of the 9th Connecticut Infantry.
