Abstract:

I believe the taking of Vicksburg involved a major naval operation that was part of the campaign to open the Mississippi River during the American Civil War. I have reviewed the strategic and operational objectives, purpose and characteristics of the events leading up to Vicksburg to meet the parameters of why this is a major naval operation.
