The Battle of Vicksburg, which lasted from May 1864 to July 4, 1863, resulted in the separation of the Confederate states west of the river from the rest of the Confederacy after General Pemberton surrendered to General Grant.
Ulysses S. Grant was born Hiram Ulysses Grant in Point Pleasant, Ohio. During the U. S. Civil War, Grant was promoted to the rank of General and granted command of the Union army by President Abraham Lincoln. After the victory of the Union over the Confederacy, Grant's popularity led to his election as the 18th President of the United States in 1868. View on Ohio Memory.
