Monument is located north of, and outside, Vicksburg National Military Park.
The bronze was sculpted by Bruce Saville. Cost of the bronze was $168.

50 years ago, about 24.4 acres along Sherman Avenue were turned over to Warren County by the National Park Service and many monuments were moved to Vicksburg National Park. This one has remained off the park.
