  3. Just got back from Vicksburg on a trip to study the battle with the Civil War Center at Kennesaw State and the Cobb County, and Atlanta Roundtable folks. The visit has led me to ponder many things about the battle, General Grant and General S.D. Lee, both of whom, on opposite sides, performed brilliantly.
