From Vicksburg to Bennett Place
From Vicksburg to Bennett Place: The Long March to Victory relates that Captain Porter served as the aide-de-camp to Brigadier General Mortimer Leggett, assisting the general as Major General Ulysees S. Grant’s Army of Tennessee moved south from Shiloh and fought in the Vicksburg and Atlanta campaigns. Once successful, the army, now under the command of Major General William Tecumseh Sherman, marched to the sea and then north through the Carolinas. Two weeks after Robert E. Lee’s surrender to Grant, Joseph Johnston surrendered to Sherman at Bennett Place in No. Carolina, effectively ending the war. Captain George Porter lived through it all.
