Michael Ballard provides a concise yet thorough study of the 1863 battle that cut off a crucial river port and rail depot for the South and split the Confederate nation, providing a turning point in the Civil War. The Union victory at Vicksburg was hailed with as much celebration in the North as the Gettysburg victory and Ballard makes a convincing case that it was equally important to the ultimate resolution of the conflict.

Book Description:

"Michael Ballard's Vicksburg must be considered essential reading for all Civil War historians interested in the Western Theater of operations. His astute analysis and deft interweaving of military decision making, campaign strategy and battle tactics, political and economic factors, and the many challenges confronting Southern civilians bring together in one volume the complexity of the fight for mastery of the Mississippi River."--Carol Reardon, author of Pickett's Charge in History and Memory

From the Inside Flap:

Ballard provides a concise yet thorough study of the 1863 battle that cut off a crucial port and rail depot for the South and split Confederate territory, providing a turning point in the Civil War. He argues that the Union victory at Vicksburg was met with as much celebration in the North as the Gettysburg victory and should be viewed as equally important today.
