The Union's Victory At
Vicksburg, Mississippi was important because Lincoln needed a victory to announce the emancipation proclamation so that it would look like a treat and not a last resort. ( If this victory hadn't occurred then the South would have thought that the North was too bad off and was so desperate that it needed to resort to Negroes to win the war. I have nothing against blacks I'm just giving the perspective of the time.)
