VICKSBURG

By Tom Darin Liskey

Our car
broke down
In Vicksburg
Broke down
like our marriage
Our last ten dollars
You hocked:
our wedding rings
the laptop, jewelry
whatever else we didn’t need
We sold the car for scrap
With the money
We rented a room
At Dixie’s Last Stand
A motor court
with stuttering neon
& tattered banners of defiance
The room reeked
Of roach spray
curry
& the last dregs of love
Across the road
There was a cemetery
Where some boys
From Ohio
Died fighting in 1863
now
they
lay mouldering
Awaiting resurrection
under shadow-cloaked oaks
& Spanish moss
We lived off fried bologna
sandwiches
Discount cigarettes & Wild Irish Rose
The cheapest wine
We could afford
At the corner market
Paying for our victuals
In crumpled dollar bills
sticky pennies
& nickels, dimes & quarters
It was a miracle
How we made the money stretch
for the room and booze
But sometimes
I’d have to walk down to the Home Depot
Early in the morning & wait
With the Hondurans
In the parking lot
Hoping for a little work
While you panhandled downtown
telling the lawyers
& office workers
or whoever walked by
That our baby boy
Was sick
With leukemia
That every penny
They could spare
Would go towards paying:
medical bills food medicine shelter
...toys for the child
You even showed them
The picture of you
Sitting
with
a child on a hospital bed
A young boy
Without any hair ravaged by chemo tubes and wires running from his body

In the photograph
Your arms
Are wrapped
Around his shoulders
You are smiling
& the boy is smiling too

The son we lost to cancer
Before everything else.

The Mississippi River! .
.
.
"M-I crooked letter Crooked letter, I, Crooked Letter Crooked letter, I, Humpback humpback, I, Mississippi!" Highway 61 Blues was the road trip route my husband and I traveled with my cousins (from Germany). From Memphis, we went through the cities of Tunica, Clarksdale, and Vicksburg. The Mississippi Delta is the "Birthplace of the Blues - This is Where the Soul of Man Never Dies." We took a journey through the hardships/history of our county and the impact of blues music. It was an experience I'll hold close to my heart.

Back from an epic week in Louisiana and Mississippi. From meeting my southern family, awesome food, urban exploration, to standing at the battlegrounds where my ancestors fought and later that my great-grandfather helped restore. Crazy to think about the bloodshed that happened here with families fighting families for what they believed was right. 🇺🇸🛣️✈️

A painting of my mother’s father as a young man. His name was Francis Leyens. But everyone called him Eddie. (and why wouldn’t they?)
My sister and I called him Pa. Eddie Leyens was from Vicksburg, Mississippi. He went to Exeter and Yale when very few Southern boys did. When he returned to Vicksburg after Yale, he became The Man. And this is what I know: he was handsome as all get out. Smart and funny and charming. Sophisticated. I was only 11 when he died, so how could I possibly know this? Because my mom never stopped telling his stories. I do remember how loving and attentive he was to me and my sister. And since his two kids are no longer around to pay homage, I will.
Happy Father’s Day, Pa. 🥃
When I was a teenager, my mom and I were talking about a friend of mine. She was from an elegant New Orleans family — her own mother was stylish — but the daughter had, um, questionable taste. My mother said it made no sense given her upbringing. And then Mom quoted her father, “Daddy said it’s one thing to go to Smith wearing an ankle bracelet. It’s quite another to graduate with it still on.” Ouch.
I lifted that line verbatim. I put it in the play that got me into Yale. Stole it from Eddie Leyens, Yale ‘25.
At least it’s all in the family. 💙

The plaque reads: “This monument commemorates the service of the 1st and 3rd Mississippi Infantry Regiments, African descent and all Mississipians of African descent who participated in the Vicksburg Campaign.” Quite literally fighting for not just their their own freedom, but the freedom of millions.

🤣🤣🤣trying to show off the necklace I made out of my (minted at #philadelphia ) antebellum braided hair liberty head 1852 penny from a #vicksburg civil war dig but it’s really hard to photograph - it has a hole in it because commonly a confederate soldier probably used it as a make shift button and most likely died wearing it - I’ve been excited by the civil war era since I can remember and a student of the #civilwar at my own leisure and hope to travel the #civilwartrails someday just think of all the people that may have used it or touched it - I 💕American history - the other half of this ribbon is buried with a friend - I’m never taking this off - designed by #christiangobrecht second U.S. mint designer. #shelbyfoote #taps

The siege of Vicksburg hadn't officially begun, but by May 23, 1863, many men of the 57th Georgia Infantry were already short on rations. This list, available for purchase from our website, was compiled by First Sergeant Patrick Henry Ward. By company, Ward recorded the names of fifty-three hungry men of the 57th who had an another forty-two days in the trenches before the surrender of the Confederate stronghold.

To say I love this man is an understatement. God always knows best, but most days I wish I could’ve met him sooner so l could love him longer. He loves me perfectly and never misses the opportunity to make me feel like a princess. He is my favorite part of us 💙 #loved #blessed #godsplan #cedargrove #vicksburg

Love can cover a multitude of sins. It isn't easy forgiving others when they've wronged you but remember that you would want forgiveness as well. The way you love people each day, even in the smallest ways, can have a huge and lasting impact!

We are in the age of digital...so why buy prints? Now don't get me wrong, digital photos are great...like FaceTime. You get to talk to the person you love, you get to hear their voice. And that's great. But isn't it better when you can run up and hug them? When you can go hang out with them at dinner and talk and laugh. When there is no "bad connection" or "loading" getting in your way of you being with the person you love. That's why you need prints. Sure, you could stick with just digital photos, but you'll never be able to experience the emotion filled experience of being able to hold your photos in your hands...touch it...share it...and pass it down for generations to come. Check out the blog for 5 reasons you need professional prints!
