Mark's Almanac for May 27, 2021
It's a day of U.S. Civil War events today. It was on this date in 1862 that the Battle of Hanover Courthouse, Pennsylvania took place. The result was inconclusive. And it was on this date in 1863 that the siege of Port Hudson, Louisiana took place. It turned out to be one of the longest sieges in U.S. military history.
