THE REAL HORSE SOLDIERS: Benjamin Grierson's Epic 1863 Civil War Raid Through Mississippi
Grierson's Raid, April 17 to May 2 1863, through Mississippi (entering the northern border with Tennessee and exiting its southern border with Louisiana) broke a vital Confederate rail line at Newton Station that supplied Vicksburg and, perhaps most importantly, consumed the attention of the Confederate high command. While Confederate Lt. Gen. John Pemberton at Vicksburg and other Southern leaders looked in the wrong directions, Grant moved his entire Army of the Tennessee across the Mississippi River below Vicksburg, spelling the doom of that city, the Confederate chances of holding the river, and perhaps the Confederacy itself. Includes 36 images and 13 maps.1 vol, 376 pgs 2020 US, SAVAS BEATIE
