It was a good reading to understand how vital Vicksburg was to both North and South for several reasons especially control of commerce on Mississippi. The capture of Vicksburg by North was the turning point at same time with victory of Gettysburg for North which was so interesting. Good reading for anyone who is history/Civil War buff.
