My original set was destroyed along with several other books while waiting for my bookshelves in the study to be built, after moving into our new house. The Vol. 1 Morningside Books, Dayton, OH is defunct; so, when I found Vol.
1 single complete set the last time we took the Scout Troop to Vicksburg National Military One Day At A Time - The Vicksburgs - Best Of The Vicksburgs inI snapped it up - possibly purchasing the last complete set that existed "in the wild. Feb 05, Tim rated it liked it. Edwin Bearss' all-encompassing approach to the history of the Vicksburg Campaign Luv Connection (Masters At Work Dub2) - Towa Tei - Future Recall 2 pretty damn awe-inspiring in many ways, but it's also primarily for the Civil War junkie and certainly flawed.
Seeing as the three-volume set totals about 2, pages and was printed by an Ohio bookshop albeit an awesome one, now defunctit's pretty obvious that casual readers need not apply. And Edwin Bearss' all-encompassing approach to the history of the Vicksburg Campaign is pretty damn awe-inspiring in many ways, but it's also primarily for the Civil War junkie and certainly flawed.
And wow, the Feds threw everything including the kitchen sink at the Rebels, most of these forays failures. Bearss' book is particularly brilliant in chronicling the details needed to make a war: supplying, equipping and transporting armies, and Sleep - Bill Nelson - Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam & Sounding The Ritual Echo (Atmospheres For on numerous fronts to make it all happen.
The war wasn't just fighting. Here we have General Ulysses Grant's many-pronged approach in detail: first trying the overland approach to Vicksburg stymiedthen attempting four different water approaches to outflank the Rebels, all failures.
Bearss lays out each of these campaigns within a campaign in its entirety; most of them overlap chronologically, but he relates them one at a time. One Day At A Time - The Vicksburgs - Best Of The Vicksburgs actually works well. The prologue suggests this project was done in one hell of a hurry. Bearss says the idea started in He mentions tight deadlines, and this plus page volume was Vol.
1 in the other two by Granted, Bearss had produced some unpublished works on Vicksburg in the s, and I'm sure those were made part of this work. Perhaps the rush is part of the reason why the three books are so incredibly single-source heavy. The fact that Bearss, a longtime Vicksburg park historian and a former Chief Historian of the National Park Service, probably knows more about the campaign than anyone alive he's 92 as of this writing soothes this complaint somewhat, however.
I have not the slightest doubt he knows intimately what he's writing about, and perhaps citing the O. The lengthy bibliography suggest a lot of sources were used in this project. There aren't though, as many quoted passages from participants as I normally like. Also on the minus side, there are a good five fewer maps than there should be and the existing ones are ordinary.
In one of them, a key landmark and focus of fighting in the Battle of Chickasaw Bayou, an Indian mound, is completely left off the map, though readers can deduce where it is. There are some significant places whose locations I still don't know precisely. I suspect Bearss wrote expecting maps to cover more of his bases. Bearss also doesn't go out of his way to make things clear; sometimes, I think, that's the result of a total expert assuming more of his audience than he should.
The last pages or so, chronicling, in part, Rebel partisans' effort to disrupt the Union in north Mississippi and Tennessee, is a slog, ending the book on a sour note that helps deny it a fourth star. I can't stress enough what a good job Bearss does in approaching the Vicksburg Campaign from all angles, including cavalry raids led by Earl Van Dorn and Nathan Bedford Forrest on Grant's supply lines, and the Union navy's attempts to scoot past the Mississippi River Rebel batteries.
By the way, for the most part, this first volume covers November to March Overall: extremely valuable, amazing in its depth, but imperfect.
