    Regarding your speculations about Lee’s motivations for attacking a well fortified position in a northern state, I’d add that I think Jefferson Davis and an older brother of his personally owned substantial plantation holdings not far south of Vicksburg that I would imagine were severely depleted of slaves by the 4th of July in 1863.
