What plan was used to split the confederacy?

How did the battle of Vicksburh relate to the Anaconda Plan?
Once Grant gained control of Vicksburg, it cut the Confederacy in half. Everything west of the Mississippi River had no communication with the rest of the Confederacy. This relates to the Anaconda plan because the more that the Union can split the Confederacy, the weaker it will become and the more likely it will be to surrender.
