A description of the battle of Vicksburg by Marley David Erik Dominic and Katherine C.

The Battle of Vicksburg By: David H., Dominic, Erik, and Marley

Before the Battle The South made the first ironclad ship when their navy covered the Union’s left behind Merrimac with iron plates. In response, the North made the Monitor and the two ships fought in May 1862 for four hours in the Chesapeake Bay without a winner. The Union used ironclad ships in their plan to take over the Mississippi River. The North controlled both ends of the Mississippi, but they couldn’t move things up and down the river because the Union still controlled the key point, Vicksburg, Mississippi.

The Town of Vicksburg Vicksburg was hard for the Union to take control, but easy for the South to defend. Confederates placed cannons on top of bluffs to prevent Union form attacking from the water. The North was forced to use their Army and their Navy to launch bullets at the city from land and water.
