The Hill Of Death...
of the Old Jackson Road, looking northward, at what is known as the "Crossroads"
at the Battle Of Champion Hill,
May 16, 1863. At this spot, the Upper and Middle
Jackson Roads intersect, and was the
strategic objective for both armies
during the battle. General Grant's and
General Pemberton's forces fought over this ground,
changing hands three times, until
General Pemberton ordered the retreat back
toward Vicksburg. As one Union
soldier observed on this very spot the night after the battle,
"The dead were piled 3
and 4 deep, like cord wood, in every direction..."
Union Brig. General Alvin Hovey lost
of his Division in the battle--
the 2nd highest percentage loss by a US
Division within one day of battle during the entire war--and poignantly
wrote in his battle report that," I
cannot think of this bloody hill without sadness
and pride...It was, after the conflict,
literally the Hill of Death..."
This was the decisive Battle for
Vicksburg, and is understood by the most astute historians
as one of the most strategic
battles affecting the outcome of the entire war.

I have had a total passion for the War Between The States
since 8 years old, and have been a reenactor for 31 years. My obsession
with all things war-related, whether specific historical information (such as
battles, campaigns, strategy, and tactics), collecting militaria, and "relic
hunting" (I prefer "battlefield archeology"), has blessed me with a profound
knowledge regarding the War. I am also a graduate of the University of
Cincinnati, Magna Cum Laude, from the School of Business, and had been a Quality
Assurance Engineer, Quality Manager, and Operations Manager in my previous
professional career. I utilize this background of history and business
management to provide you, the customer, with the most accurate, complete, and
forthright information, as well as fair business practices, in all my
transactions and dealings.
