Blue Skies and Grant


General Grant looks great under a blue sky! This is a monument to him inside the Vicksburg National Military Park in Vicksburg. It's a great place to visit, if you're ever in the area.

This view reminds me of the opening scene of "Chisum", with John Wayne...

Fantastic shot.

Beautiful sky. Looks like the general and his mount are sunbathing. I'm surprised to see a statue of a Union general at Vicksburg. The men in gray must be better losers than I had thought.
