No. It was a siege which looked as though it would destroy the Army of the Cumberland, and would have allowed the Confederates a big move North.

But Grant came East to relieve the Army of the Cumberland, and in the end, it was a Union victory.

What took place in 1863 to swing the advantage to the side of the Union?

The Union won three decisive battles, which swung the advantage to its side: 1 - The Battle and Siege of Vicksburg, which, after a campaign lasted from May19 through July 4, 1863, led to the surrendering of the Confederate fortress and the capture of the besieged Pemberton's Army, followed on July 9 by the surrendering of Port Hudson. The Mississippi River was then under complete control of the Union. 2 - The Battle of Gettysburg, fought from July 1 to July 3, 1863. 3- The Third Battle of Chattanooga, fought from October 26 through November 25 1863, which opened the way to the invasion of Georgia.

What did John Bell Hood do?

He led the Army of Tennessee to disaster. The Confederate President, Jefferson Davis, fired Joe Johnston and replaced him with Hood, because Hood was Jefferson's idea of a good Confederate, a real gung-ho fighter and leader. (Johnston's policy of minimising his casualties because the South was running out of manpower did not strike Davis as the Confederate thing to do.) Hood turned out quite wrong as an army commander, and squandered precious lives everywhere. His defeat by George Thomas at Nashville was the only decisive rout of a Confederate army.
