Mississippi River, Memphis to Vicksburg

I am on the way to Vicksburg, Mississippi to visit General McPherson and review my plans and the situation. I march on the route traveled last summer through Jackson and on to Meridian, Mississippi, a march of about 150 miles. We will move light and rapidly and feed off the countryside. Cavalry will advance on Meridian from Memphis. If I have enough troops, I might try Selma or Mobile.
