"This volume has several purposes," Michl B. Ballard explains. "The most important is to inform the novice about the war in Mississippi. I have attempted to achieve this through brief narrative descriptions of the major campaigns and battles in the state." In Civil War Mississippi Ballard also strives to place the military engagements at Iuka, Corinth, Vicksburg, Meridian, Brice's Cross Roads, and Tupelo within the larger context of the Western Theater. In addition to maps and photos, several useful appendices (one of which contains travel directions) are included.
