Happy Fourth of July, everybody!
This week, of course, marks the sesquicentennial of the great turning point in the American Civil War, after which the Union held the strategic initiative, and the South increasingly found itself fighting a purely defensive war.
And Gettysburg was pretty important, too.
More seriously, which event — Gettysburg or the fall of Vicksburg in the West — do you think was more significant in the overall course of the war, and why?
Be safe, y’all.
