I had the privilege of touring some of the battlefield in 2012 and was inspired to read Smith s book and learn After reading the book, I am looking forward to walking of the ground in the future.
I read over this book for a military staff ride of the Vicksburg campaign This book is a very detailed account of the battle of Champion Hill.
Has to be one of least covered battles of the entire war, from a historical coverage Fascinating battle, given the number of swings back and forth between the counter attacks Interesting to know the Union could have trapped and crushed the entire Confederate army under Pendleton, had they coordinated their attacks, and avoided the entire siege of Vicksburg Interested in seeing if this battlefield site can be found when we visit Mississippi next year.
Once General Grant had defeated the Confederates at the Battle of Champion Hill, his further victory at Vicksburg was assured, all but sealing the South s fate I m not a big fan of reading about military battle movements, but this book is extremely readable and interesting Having read it, I m even excited about visiting these Mississippi battlefields in September.
