VICKSBURG – The Georgia Memorial at the Vicksburg National Military Park will be missing its top section for a couple of weeks.
The damage occurred while the 18-foot-tall gray granite structure was being moved Thursday.
Park Superintendent Mike Madell said the section was scuffed slightly as it was being lifted into place.
Madell said it will be sent to a Georgia stoneworks company for repair.
The monument was being moved about 100 yards across a patch of grass to a new site along the park’s South Loop.
