Civil War Comes to Yazoo 1862 – 1864

The Civil War Comes to Yazoo 1862-1864 Originally titled “The Battle for Yazoo,” THIS PAMPHLET (out of print but available for download) was compiled many years ago from information supplied by Glen Jones, Mississippi Chemical Corporation; Edwin C. Bearss, Research Historian, Vicksburg National Park, and Sam Olden, President, Yazoo Historical Society. It was first produced by the Yazoo County Chamber of Commerce. In 2015, the Yazoo County Convention & Visitors Bureau took on the task of updating this information based on a large collection in the Ricks Memorial Library, assembled by John E. Ellzey, of articles by Sam Olden which were published over the years by The Yazoo Herald. The following information includes updates and additions to the original pamphlet along with the information from the article by Mr. Olden. Yazoo owes a debt of gratitude to Mr. Olden and to Mr. Ellzey for their love of Yazoo and their dedication
