Victory at Vicksburg!!! (145th Anniversary + 10 days)

Well, while I working down here in Jackson, MS, I was able to get away for a Sunday to go see the Vicksburg, MS, National Battlefield. I was not able to spend much time there, but I got to see mostly what I wanted to see - The Missouri Monument, most of the Missouri units' markers, Thayer's Approach (and walk up and down it in with a Humidity Factor of 106 F / 41 C!), and finally the USS Cairo.
