More Union Failures
This chapter focuses on the Union campaign to capture Vicksburg. It details Grant’s strategy; the Holly Springs debacle that forced Grant to retreat north toward Tennessee; and the battle of Chicksaw Bayou. The grand scheme concocted by Grant and Sherman had failed miserably. In their attempt to hurry up the campaign in order to have Vicksburg, they ignored the risks that lengthy supply lines, geography, and weather conditions could impose on an army.
