—Vicksburg Heritage Walking Trail —In 1887 the State of Louisiana placed the first Confederate monument, here, in the middle of Monroe Street. The monument preceded the establishment of the National Military Park by 12 years. Later the City of Vicksburg dedicated this garden area to honor all veterans. The World War I Monument was placed here in 1923. Brothers William and Henry Allein are depicted on each side of the monument. They were two young men from Vicksburg who died 21 days apart in Europe during the First World War.
