By conquering Vicksburg, a city of strategic importance on the Mississippi River, the North achieved its aims in one of the most vital military campaigns of the Civil War. Bombarded by Union gunboats throughout the summer of 1862 and placed under siege by General Grant, the city was surrendered to the Union on July 4, 1863. Thus the Confederacy was divided, and the supply route to the South's troops was sundered.
This book of photographs surveys the monuments that were erected at the battlefield site to honor those who fought and those who died at Vicksburg. This historical record of each monument, with explanations of its symbolism, design, and significance, commemorates the role of each Union and each Confederate state that was engaged in the Vicksburg campaign. This book will give one a sense of the history and the scenic beauty aroused by the monuments at Vicksburg.
