Memorial Day Weekend in Vicksburg, Part 1: Cannon

We’ve visited Vicksburg National Cemetery a few times before, but since this was Memorial Day Weekend, we thought it would be really nice (and appropriate) to go.

The first thing we did was stop where some reenactors were getting ready to fire a cannon:

Okay, that was one of the loudest things I have *ever* heard.
