Overview
-

Accounts of the struggles of besieged people have always had an appeal, and Vicksburg is one of the best remembered engagements of the Civil War. With an eye for the dramatic, Hoehling has extracted portions of published and unpublished sources by both Union and Confederate writers, who describe the miserable housing, diets, and hospital conditions endured by citizens and soldiers living under a constant bombardment.
