This is a memorial to Mississippians who have given their lives in service.

I am not a fan of the state flag though. I don't agree with the appearance of the confederate flag on the corner. I think it stands for one of the low points in this country's history and considering the racial make-up of Mississippi, I'm surprised it's still there.

I just took a look at wikipedia, and it appears that a vote was taken on the flag in 2001 and so the conferate jack remains.
