Turns 43-46 Louisiana,
With Sherman as a corps commander, Hooker assaulted Price.
This required several costly clashes losing the Union national morale, and losing Sherman seniority )one is shown for brevity.
Meanwhile on the river USA and CSA ironclads clashed several times, with slight losses for the Union, but the CSA fleet withdrew.
Though costly, the battles had the desired effect, price was forced from his entrenchments.
With Union iroclads preventing a retreat, Sherman took the 3 strongest divisions and hit Price again.
This is a great result as Price cannot flee across the river, nor into the Union-controlled neighbouring regions.
I will continue to grind down these 2 divisions, hopefully until they are destroyed, and therefore open up the Mississippi to Union forces.
The last action allowed me to promote George Meade.
I will send him to Georgia, where a competent corps commander is desperately needed.
