Port Hudson- Confederate Bastion on the Mississippi

Port Hudson, La., holds a distinctive place in Civil War history. Located just north of Baton Rouge, the village with its extensive redoubts and batteries was the last Confederate stronghold on the Missisippi River and the site of the longest genuine siege in American military history. Lawrence Lee Hewitt presents the compelling story of the Confederate occupation of Port Hudson in August, 1862, and of the Union's efforts to capture the stronghold, culminating in the final unsuccessful assault in May, 1863. Throughout, Hewitt offers a colorful narrative account of life in the garrison, the commanders' strategies, and the importance of Port Hudson to the war.
