The Siege of Vicksburg

by Richard Wheeler.Crowell, $10.00. Mr. Wheeler has collected Civil War letters, diaries, memoirs, newspaper reports—everything, in short, that he could find—and fitted the materials together to form a lively reconstruction of operations on both sides in the long struggle for Vicksburg and control of the Mississippi. This was no simple editing job; Mr. Wheeler’s connecting text is indispensable and well managed. Illustrations, maps, bibliography.
