Mississippi Monument Dedication at Shiloh

A friend of mine recently sent me some photos of the Mississippi monument dedication, which took place at Shiloh Military Park on October 10, 2015. The occasion was marked by special speeches and was well attended. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there for this special event. The National Park Service has said that this is the last monument they will allow to be erected in the park. The Sons of Confederate Veterans in Mississippi  have been working on making this dream a reality for several years. Special thanks to Mr. Clay Pruett for providing these photographs.
