General Grant ordered Union troops to attack Confederate defenses at several points simultaneously on May 22 , 1863. In this scene, troops move forward in a hail of gunfire at the Railroad Redoubt. A Union soldier climbs up the Confederate breastworks to plant his regimental colors, but all the Union assaults were driven back. The Union army attacks on both days were unsuccessful, suffering their heaviest losses of the Vicksburg campaign.
