    Of interest not only to Civil War buffs but to all who follow our country's history, 'Vicksburg and the War' offers an in depth look at much that has been overlooked. Generously illustrated this slim volume focuses on the people of Vicksburg, their hopes and the dreaded time of occupation. As votes indicated the people of Vicksburg were not in favor of secession or the Civil War. However, when the Union army was at their doorstep and they were left with no alternative Vicksburg joined forces with the Confederacy. Well over 2,500 men trooped off to battle. Many never returned. Along with other Southerners citizens of Vicksburg believed the war would end in a matter of days but the months wore on. For 47 days the city was under siege and then occupied by the enemy for a matter of years. 'Vicksburg and the War' traces military actions in that area as well as military occupation of one of the most 'Southern of cities.' Perhaps most poignant is the author's documentation of the feelings of Vicksburg's people.
