Within the boundaries of the Vicksburg National Military Park one can drive by over 1000 monuments and markers honoring the participation of citizens of these now United States of America. In none of them would the visitor see this man or any other black man . . . until now. This monument COMMEMORATING THE SERVICE OF THE 1ST AND 3RD INFANTRY REGIMENTS, AFRICAN DESCENT, AND ALL MISSISSIPPIANS OF AFRICAN DESCENT WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE VICKSBURG CAMPAIGN singularly changed that for all time. This piece was completed in that flash of chaos the same night that MONUMENTAL HEAD – ONE was born.
