Issued at Macon, MS the capital of Mississippi during the Civil War after Jackson fell, these uniface notes recall the Blue & Gray’s struggles to control the Mississippi River, culminating in the Battle of Vicksburg. Early in 1863, Grant developed plans to capture the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg. After several smallerbattles, Grant sent Sherman to take Jackson, MS while he moved on to Vicksburg. For 47 days, this critical battle played out. Finally, on July 4th, the Confederates surrendered, giving up control of the Mississippi River. And, these handsome $3 notes, with the vivid red three overprint and the soldier standing guard at the center, pay tribute to the heroism of the Union and Confederate soldiers.
