-- Napoleon Bonaparte

The Guns Of Port Hudson Vol.2

Vol.2 covers the investment, siege, and reduction of Port Hudson. President Lincoln planned to take control of the Mississippi River. General U.S. Grant moved against Vicksburg, MS while General N.P. Banks and Admiral David Farragut moved against Port Hudson. The siege of Port Hudson was one of the longest sieges in American history. This is a great book!
