尤利塞斯·格兰特 (Ulysses S. Grant) 将军试图夺下密西西比州的威克斯堡 (Vicksburg) :1863519

在内战期间,密西西比州的威克斯堡是南方联盟一个重要,而且戒备森严的堡垒。在1863519日,联邦军队在格兰特将军的率领之下,长驱直入准备攻下这座堡垒。联邦海军当时已经成功的防止其他军团前来援助南方联盟驻守在威克斯堡的潘伯顿 (C. Pemberton) 将军,但是威克斯堡的防守还是固若金汤。虽然格兰特将军久攻不下,但他却一直没有放弃。

Vicksburg, Mississippi, was an important, well-protected fortress for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. On May 19, 1863, Union General Ulysses S. Grant attacked Vicksburg--a direct assault with intent to take over the city. The Union navy had already prevented other regiments from joining Confederate General C. Pemberton at Vicksburg, but the Southern city held strong that day. Grant, however, did not stop there.
