The Greenville Bends

Posted by Picasa

This drawing / map is a part / stretch of the Mississippi River called, as above, the Greenville Bends. It was defended early in the Civil War by Confederate Artillery redoubts as shown on the drawing. The two river boats shown are a part of the U. S. "brown water navy" assigned to patrol the river.
