Following the loss of the CSS Arkansas in early August 1862, Union and Confederate eyes turned to the Yazoo River, which formed the developing northern flank for the South's fortress at Vicksburg, Mississippi. For much of the next year, Federal efforts to capture the citadel focused on possession of that stream. Huge battles and mighty expeditions were launched (Chickasaw Bayou, Yazoo Pass, Steele's Bayou) from that direction, but the city, guarded by stout defenses, swamps, and motivated defenders, could not be turned. Finally, Union troops ran down the Mississippi and came up from the south and the river defenses and the bastion itself were taken from the east. From July 1863 to August 1864, sporadic Confederate resistance necessitated continued Federal attention. This book recounts the whole story.

Review:

"extremely well researched...highly recommended...definitive"--Civil War News; "offers much to its readers. It provides a sweeping depiction of the military maneuvers that took place in the region north of Vicksburg...readers are bound to gain a greater understanding of this aspect of Civil War history"--Civil War Book Review; "If it sailed on the brown water of America's Western rives during the Civil War and flew the Stars and Stripes of the Union Navy, Myron Smith more than likely knows about it"--America's Civil War; "in addition to documenting an astounding array of ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore engagements, the vast trove of source material uncovered also allows readers access to a vast amount of information about the officers and men serving aboard these vessels...essential"--Civil War Books and Authors; "thoroughly researched...well illustrated...very valuable"--Nautical Research Journal.
