Sesqui Vicksburg

It's a little too early to tell if Vicksburg will be one of the major CW events that doesn't get its Sesquicentennial due (at least in terms of memorable publications), but there are at least two promising books scheduled for next year: Michael Ballard's Grant at Vicksburg: The General and the Siege and the next volume from SIUP's essay series The Vicksburg Campaign, March 29-May 18, 1863.

A potentially very exciting prospect gleaned from a reviewer bio (Arnold Blumberg's) in the latest issue of B&G magazine is the first dedicated study of Grant's overland Mississippi campaign of 1862.  Years ago, so long ago I forget the fellow's name, there was a Chickasaw Bayou book in the works, but I've not heard a peep since.

Enjoy the holidays!
