Re: [civilwarwest] Was Pemberton Wrong, Bad, Incompetent (Vicksburg Ca mpaign)
- Since the Confederacy never laid siege to a major Northern City except, possibly, Nashville, we need to look elsewhere for a Confederate behavior vis a' vis the citizenship. I suggest that the Confederate treatment of the citizens of eastern Tennessee and Mississippi were treated far worse by the Confederacy than any treatment of citizens by Federals in those states.After all, the Federals saw all the citizens if Vucksburgas Americans.
If Pemberton had surrendered earlier, it would have been over earlier.
Before the war, Vicksburg voted not to secede.

I am of the opinion that Pemberton acquitted himself well enough during the campaign. He just ran up against Grant. I'm just wondering what you folks think.
1. Was Grant that good; or
2. Was Pemberton that bad; or
3. Is it some where in between?
I really can't wait to read opinions and to engage in discussion. Thanks.
