1. Remember the Sacrifices Marker
Inscription. Look around. This peaceful place once trembled 
with the roar of cannon, rumbled with
 underground explosions, and echoed with the 
cries of wounded and dying soldiers. Here men,
 who before 1861 had been fellow citizens, fought
 each other to the death over ideals about what 
America should be. Their suffering and courage 
are forever linked to this battlefield.

During the early 1900s, veterans came back to 
Vicksburg to mark where they had fought. Red 
plaques show Confederate defenses. Blue
 plaques show Union siege works and lines of 
attack. This War Department effort made
 Vicksburg one of the best-marked battlefields 
in the world.


Please honor the Vicksburg Campaign's 100,000 veterans.
Visit this national military park with reverence.
