The Union planned to capture Mississippi. This would break the South in half and create more problems.
the anaconda plan
The name of the southern states when they split was called [The] Confederacy.
I believe it was the anaconda plan.
The Siege of Vicksburg (May-July 1863) split the Confederacy by giving control of the Mississippi River to the Union forces. The city and as many as 30,000 soldiers surrendered on July 4, 1863.
the anaconda plan
It advanced the Union plan to split the confederacy along the Mississippi River.
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.
Railroad lines from Chattanooga linked major distribution centers of the Confederacy; it was a key in Lincoln's plan to "divide and conquer" the South.
The objective was Vicksburg, the last Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi.
the confederacy was split in two after it lost strongholds along the mississippi river.
The Anaconda plan was strategically simplistic and of course tactically difficult to implement. It entailed controlling the Mississippi (which would split the Confederacy) and blockading the South to prevent exports (which would be used to pay for weapons).
Northern success in the Siege of Vicksburg was important because the Union had a plan called the anaconda plan. The anaconda plan is when the Union planned to cut the Confederacy in half. By doing this, the Confederacy would not have any way to obtain (get) supplies (food, clothes, weaponry, etc.) When the siege of Vicksburg was a success, the Union was able to carry out the anaconda plan since the Mississippi River is in Vicksburg, and by taking over the Mississippi River, that split the Confederacy into two.
