A Goodbye to Heraldry at Vicksburg, Mississippi

Finally, on my way back to the highway to get home (maybe next time I'll be able to go through the Confederate lines looking for heraldry), I passed through the gate of the National Cemetery at Vicksburg, Mississippi, with its three different renditions of the arms of the United States.  Cast in iron, and then gilded. What a great display of national heraldry! (Even if not every rendition is an accurate depiction of Paly of thirteen argent and gules, a chief azure.)
