Vicksburg Is the Key
Those were President Lincoln’s words about the most strategic city in the Confederacy. Vicksburg was a natural fortress that controlled navigation on the Mississippi River, and Jefferson Davis called it “the nailhead that holds the South’s two halves together.” U.S. Grant combined persistence and creativity to capture “The Gibraltar of the South” on July 4, 1863.
