News Bulletin

On this day in 1863, Union forces begin the Siege of Port Hudson which lasts 48 days, the longest siege in U.S. military history up to that point.  This Siege was the final engagement in the Union campaign to recapture the Mississippi River in the American Civil War.  From the start of the American Civil War, both the Union and Confederates made controlling the Mississippi River a major part of their strategy.  The Confederacy wanted to keep using the river to transport needed supplies; the Union wanted to stop this supply route and drive a wedge that would divide Confederate states and territories.
