Abstract:

"As Commander of the Department of the Missouri and then as commanding general of all Union armies, Henry Wager Halleck expertly crafted federal military policy and strategy for the Trans-Mississippi region. Faced with the daunting task of striking a balance between the urgent and often conflicting objectives of preserving and strengthening the Union's position in Missouri and other Trans-Mississippi states and assuring the successful outcome of federal operations in the Cis-Mississippi theater, he applied his considerable talents to formulating a strategy which would permit the deployment of the Union's not unlimited resources to the best advantage"--Page 187.
