      correct, the federal approach was to finish off Arkansas and Louisiana
      with a combined effect... the steele and red river campaigns were
      coordinated campaigns... then go into Texas [I'm sure what was to be
      next was not fleshed out very well]. The blockade, never 100%
      effective, was doing what it could independently of the overland
      campaigns. Matamoros Mexico, across the Rio Grande from Brownsville
      TX, apparently was a dilemma. Mexico generally was a big concern at
      the time.
