Perfectly aligned in peace, these are the memorial stones for some of the casualties interred during the summer of 1862 at Cooper Wells. The markers were put in place 154 years later, in the summer of 2016, by Mississippi Lt. G. J.C. Pemberton Camp 1354 Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Third Brigade. The marker reads in part, "Dedicated to the memory of the men who gave their lives in defense of Vicksburg."

Almost all these men died from disease in one or other of the hospitals around Mississippi Springs, Miss. Many had just enlisted. When the young men went for soldiers, they were exposed to germs and diseases they had not faced at home -- thus, they had no resistance to them and fell ill to various sicknesses. They also suffered the consequences of the summer weather and the unhealthy conditions of the camps. Severe diarrhea and typhoid were common killers.

Cooper Wells is also seen as Cooper's Well, Coopers Wells, and other ways.
