Vicksburg Casualties Union The Union Lost 4,835 Men In Total Confederacy 3,202 Killed Or Wounded 29,495 Captured Generals Union - General Ulysses S. Grant Confederacy - General John C. Pemberton Anecdotes We have our trenches pulled up so close to the enemy that we can throw hand grenades over into their forts. The enemy do not dare show their heads above the parapet at any time, so close and so watchful are our sharpshooters. The town is completely invested. My position is so strong that I feel myself abundantly able to lead its so and go out twenty or thirty miles with force enough to whip two such garrisons. - Ulysses S. Grant, writing to George G. Pride, June 15, 1863 The Victors of The Battle Of Vicksburg was the Union. The Union won since General John C Pemberton surrendered when he was short on food and supplies. The Union gained control of the Mississippi River and split the South into two. The North won most of the battle during the seven days battle, but McClellan retreated given the South the win. General Lee soon took command of the Northern Virginian Army. The Confederacy, although like Antietam, both sides killed so many of the other army that both claimed victory. The Confederacy is granted the historical victory because the Union Army eventually retreated. Both sides claimed that they came out ahead. It was a tactical win for the South, they managed to hold against Northern assaults, but a strategic win for the North, since it blunted Lee's first invasion and forced him to return to the South. Ultimately, Shiloh may be considered a Union victory because it led to later successful campaigns in the West. It was one of the bloodiest contests of the war, losses on each side reaching over 10,000, and, with the possible exceptions of Antietam and Gettysburg, it has been the subject of more controversy than any other Civil War battle.
