The sculptor was Theo Alice Ruggles Kitson, and is mounted on a 15-ton boulder from Massachusetts. The three regiments from Massachusetts arrived in Vicksburg in June 1863. The monument is a tribute to the courage and sacrifice of the state’s soldiers who suffered 19 casualties during the conflict.
