Grant and the Battle for the Rivers

Civil War military histories typically treat land and sea battles separately. But Ulysses S. Grant stressed joint army and naval operations aimed at both solid and liquid Confederate “assets.” Using the 1863 Vicksburg Campaign as a starting point, three distinguished historians of the era explore this revolution in military strategy.

John F. Marszalek is executive director and managing editor of the Ulysses S. Grant Association. Craig L. Symonds is Ernest J. King Professor of Maritime History at the U.S. Naval War College. Harold Holzer (moderator) is the author, co-author, or editor of more than 50 books on Lincoln and the Civil War era.
