WHEREAS, The operations that culminated almost simultaneously at Gettysburg and Vicksburg in July, 1863, not only mark the turning point in the War of the Rebellion, but also constitute one of the greatest epochs in the history of our country, and should both be commemorated in the most impressing and enduring manner possible; and
WHEREAS, The establishment of a National Military Park at Vicksburg will be a most fitting and appropriate monument to the Great Commander, whose genius planned these operations and directed them to a successful issue; and
