What was the landscape of Vicksburg? There was green grass, and lush trees. The Mississippi River ran right through it to make the scene even better. Did anybody important die at the battle? Some would say nobody important died, but I think that all of the lost souls, who died, died with a purpose. And they are all heroes in my heart. Were there any casualties? The South had 9,091 casualties and the North had 10,000 casualties. Who won, and who lost? The two groups that were involved in the battle of Vicksburg were the Confederate army and the Union army.
