The Historic Scene at Tour Stops 14 and 15, Fort Garrott and Hovey's Approach, has changed since this aerial photo was taken. The NPS has cleared the thick forest and vegetation leaving a scene much like it was during the siege. See Restoration of the Historic Scene which also has a link for restoration details from the Official Vicksburg National Military Park Homepage.
