  • Battle of Memphis; June 6, 1862
  • General David Farragut with Union forces captured Forts Jackson and St. Phillip. Farragut demanded the surrender of the Confederates in New Orleans, who had no choice but to listen to him.
  • Battle of Vicksburg; May 18-July 4, 1863
  • General Henry Halleck and his group of Union troops marched to Corinth to capture its crucial railroad. The Confederate forces there were a lot lower compared to the Union’s and were forced to retreat.
