2 June 1863 Hanes Bluffs Soldier's Letter (vicksburg Campaign)

June 2nd, 1863

Hanes Bluffs


Dear Sister,


As I have a few spare moments I will occupy them by writing to you. It is a beautiful morning and everything looks bright. We have just got into camp here. We left Vicksburg the next day after I wrote Phebe’s letter. Marched out near Yazoo City where we meet General Johnson with reinforcements for the Rebs at Vicksburg. We had a skirmish with them but our our force was so much larger than his he was obliged to get up and dust. He was intending to come and attack us in the rear while we were ---- them in the city but old General Grant was too smart for him. We have got them in now like sheep penned up. We’re just merely guarding prisoners. Just think how we have whipped them within the last six weeks - first at Grand Gulf, next at Port Gibson, then we moved on towards Vicksburg and then again at Walnut Hill. Here we had a hard fight but drove them on like chaff before the wind. Next at Ramond where they got a sound whipping. Here Grant divided his troops & sent part of them to Jackson & they gobbled everything the Rebs had there. Then they rushed back to Hanes Bluffs where they took the Rebs by surprise & gobbled everything at this point, siege guns & all. While Grant’s left wing was up to this little trick, we pitched into them at the big black bridge and gave them the soundest whipping the Rebs ever got taking 27 siege guns and any quantities of ammunitions and now we have got them in the little place & guarding them as a little boy guards his chickens.

My health is good as usual. Will Shepherd says to remember him to all the friends (I suppose he means Phebe) I can tell you he is a splendid fellow, I received your letter & Mary Graves’s date May 16 & Mary’s May 10. Tell Mary just as quick as I get in camp where I can write, I will write every week to her. You cannot think how thankful I feel that you write often. Give my love to all friends & accept this from Isaac (Bishop)
