Walk through the somber courtyard of the War Memorial Building next door to the Old Capitol in Jackson and you’ll see three sets of aluminum doors.
Get even closer, and you see that above the doors are depictions of some of the great battles in American history (up to the Civil War).
And even closer, you will notice that the doors are decorated with bas reliefs of implements of war through the millennia of human history. Like the limestone bas reliefs in front of the building, the doors are the work of New Orleans sculptor Albert George Rieker (1890-1959).
