review The Beleaguered City The Vicksburg Campaign December 1862 July 1863 ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Port of Vicksburg continues Foote's narrative of the great battles of the Civil War culled from his mass. Shelby Foote s The Beleaguered City a book length excerpt from his 3000 page three volume The Civil War A Narrative focuses on the Vicksburg campaign of 1862 63 an epic collision of then modern military technology trial and error tactics and unforgiving near Gothic landscape as Grant and Sherman attempted to break the back of the south by gaining dominance of the Mississippi river It may surprise the modern reader that the small town of Vicksburg was known as the Gibraltar of the West for its strategic importance Its natural setting was unusually challenging and there is something undeniably novelistic in Foote s vibrant images of ironclad warships floundering through narrow channels in the Mississippi delta running gauntlets of burning cotton bales as the machinery of the industrial age attempts to vanuish a swampy agrarian order Foote is unapologetically narrative is in his techniue as his larger series title suggests and that approach often rankles academic historians Idiosyncratic personal and defiantly undocumented the only insolent footnote in the entire work is a reference to family history Foote writes from a less academic renegade era of history writing where novelistic speculation is occasionally allowed to crush objectivity as in many scenes where the emotions or motivations of key players appear boldly on the page He is to history writing what Edmund Wilson is literary criticism addressing the educated reader but not the academic peer Like Wilson he is literally but not ualitatively amateur Foote s colorful narration springs directly from that amateur s freedom and it is often at its best when it captures the rawness and immediacy of the campaign s challenges Vivid anecdotes of daily experience are often compelling than the densely informational accounts of military tactics In those moments particularly those where Foote uotes officers strikingly expressive letters another era of American life appears vividly in its contrasting mixture of physical challenge and rhetorical elouenceIn the end the debate over Foote s objectivity is fleeting the reader will never know how much research underlies his compellingly readable account James MacPherson one of the most distinguished historians of the same era offers a ringing endorsement of Foote s work I ll respect the opinion of the author of the definitive one volume Battle Cry of Freedom and rely on his book as a reliably documented supplement
