Summary
"Between April 17 and May 2, 1863, Union cavalry colonel Benjamin H. Grierson led a brigade of horse soldiers on a raid through Mississippi. Not only did the raid break the main railroad supplying the Confederates at Vicksburg, but it also took the attention of the Confederate commander John C. Pemberton. He became fixated with the lesser threat while Ulysses S. Grant's army crossed the Mississippi River in the other direction, dooming Vicksburg and perhaps the Confederacy"--Provided by publisher
