An account of East Tennesseans fighting to defend Confederate Vicksburg in late 1862 through July 1863. Their service at Vicksburg was primarily as infantrymen, but some participated as cavalry scouts, others as artillerymen. Indeed, it was admitted by many that the mightiest warship on the Mississippi during this period was sunk by the cannon of an East Tennessee battery.
