Union Avenue Road Closure - Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Union Avenue will be closed to all activities (walking, biking, jogging, and vehicle tours) between the Memorial Arch and Pemberton Avenue beginning at 6:30 a.m., and remained closed until hazardous tree removal work in the area is completed.
Rather than erect a single state memorial, Ohio chose to place a monument for each of the thirty-nine units that participated in the Vicksburg Campaign.
