The author provides an exhaustive account of the fighting for the Mississippi’s primary fortress. The 3 volumes trace Grant’s strategy for capturing Vicksburg and the unfolding siege from November 1862 to the city’s fall. Bearss supplies a condensed version of the O.R. (q.v.) that readers can digest, although a number of other sources are also employed. Although analysis and interpretation are sparse, details of many actions–not all of them important–are abundant, often to a miniscule level.
