i dont think i was for moving troops from west to east or vice versa as much as it was to move troops north to south, south to north, also it had many tributaries that branched from it. The lost of the mississippi was a mortal wound to the confederates. but i also agree with you at the same time. I think Vicksburg was more of a morale issue for the north then a strategic one.
