Indiana Memorial

One of the more unusual memorials at Vicksburg is the Indiana Memorial.  Instead of crowning their memorial with a general or soldier figure, Indiana chose War Governor Oliver Perry Morton.  Governor Morton was very active during the way insuring the Indiana troops were well supplied and equipped
The Indiana Memorial was dedicated on June 16, 1926 and is located near Tour Stop 14. Photo and narrative courtesy of Ed Conner, TN
