Mississippi Veterans Monument




An interesting monument in the heart of downtown Jackson. The inscriptions at the monument to read and reflect is the oath of office which is:

"
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

Is this near the Old Capitol?

Let's go to the parade this weekend! We can get loads of material for the blog. :)

I remember that oath from when I took it in January, 1955! Looks like a nice memorial.
