My guess is "bacons" refers to "sides of bacon," rather than individualized "rations" of the meat. I'd also guess you get two sides per hog.

The CSA lost an army at Vicksburg, too. Sure, they got some soldiers back later after parole/exchange/etc. transpired, but I'm not aware of the numbers and the actual loss of manpower.

After Vicksburg, Grant's junior partner Rosecrans is even freer to concentrate on Bragg in east Tennessee.
