We wrapped up our Facebook LIVE broadcasts with a segment from Vicksburg National Cemetery. 17,000 men are buried in the cemetery, 14,000 are unidentified.
As a special treat, the park’s former chief historian, Terry Winschel, joined us to wrap up the siege. Terry is a legendary figure and a Southern gentleman (even though originally from Pittsburgh), so it was a real treat for me to meet him.
