35639Why Trans-Miss. ?
- Nov 1, 2005I don't understand why the Union spent a lot of military resources
fighting in the trans-mississippi region. Once it had gained control
of the Miss. R. and cut off supplies and men from that area, why not
focus on driving the CSA forces towards to east to end the war sooner?
Then the trans. Miss. CSA would have had to surrender.
Any thoughts on these ideas?
