Military Quotes

If there is one thing you can count on in war it is that there is nothing you can count on in war.

-- Richard M. Watt

The Guns Of Port Hudson Vol.2

"The Guns Of Port Hudson" Vol.2 by David C. Edmonds
ISBN: 0-937614-06-8 pp.455

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!
