Follows the course of Grant's siege of the port of Vicksburg, Mississippi, discusses the strategies of both sides, and assesses the performance and personal objectives of officers from both the Union and Confederate armies. The companion volume to Stars in Their Courses, this marvelous account of Grant's siege of the Mississippi port of Vicksburg continues Foote's narrative of the great battles of the Civil War--culled from his massive three-volume history-recounting a campaign which Lincoln called one of the most brilliant in the world. Shelby Foote has drawn from his epic account another of the Civil War's most dramatic episodes, the taking of the city of Vicksburg by the Union forces. Ulysses S. Grant fought a long campaign over tricky terrain to get to the heavily fortified city. All the while, he had to fend off his colleague and rival General John McClernand, who decided that his aspirations to Lincoln's White House could best be realized by his possession of Vicksburg. When the city fell on July 4, 1863, after a protracted siege, it was a personal triumph for Grant and contributed largely to his later promotion to command of all the Union armies. Lincoln said that his general's campaign to reach Vicksburg had been one of the most brilliant in the world.… (mehr)

He is your go to guy when it comes to the Civil War. Quite an interesting character himself and a friend of William Faulkner's. ( )

Haste made waste and Ulysses S. Grant knew it, but in this case the haste was unavoidable - unavoidable, that is, unless he was willing to take the risk of having another general win the prize he was after - because he was fighting two wars simultaneously: one against the Confederacy, or at any rate so much of its army as stood between him and Vicksburg, the blufftop river town that was his goal, and the other against a man who, like himself, wore blue.

McClernand found no such thing, of course. All he found when at last he reached Memphis on December 29 were the empty docks his men had departed from, ten days ago under Sherman, and Grant's telegram, delayed eleven days in transmission. Nor did Grant's own plans, "all complete for weeks to come," work out as he had intended and predicted. In both cases - entirely in the former and largely in the latter - the cause could be summed up in three two-syllable nouns: Nathan Bedford Forrest.
"Court!" the admiral snorted. "I have no time to order courts. I can't blame an officer who puts his ship close to the enemy. Is there any other vessel you would like to have?" Without waiting for an answer he turned abruptly to the flag captain standing beside him on the bridge. "Breese, make out Selfridge's orders to the Conestoga."
(upon Selfridge's request for a court of inquiry after Selfridge's vessel had been sunk from under him)
