|A view on the Mississippi River from the grounds of Vicksburg National Military Park.|
The park commemorates the campaign, siege, and defense of Vicksburg. The city's surrender on July 4, 1863, along with the capture of Port Hudson, LA, on July 8, split the South, giving control of the Mississippi River to the Union. Over 1,340 monuments, a restored Union gunboat, and National Cemetery mark the 16-mile tour road.

You have selected a nice POV to show beauties of the place. Wonderful subject and very good presentation with details and natural colours. Only composition of the shot is disputable a bit. I mean the horizon line in the center of the frame. TFS and warm regards.
