Australian and New Zealand troops stationed in Egypt were sent to the Dardanelles, along with British and French contingents. It took 52 them six weeks to assemble the invasion force; the Turks (amply forewarned by the failed naval attack) prepared their defences. Mustafa Kemal, a 34-year-old lieutenant colonel in the Turkish army (and the future President of the Independent Republic of Turkey) played a key role in the defence.

Grant had driven Confederate forces back into the city of Vicksburg and successfully besieged the city. From now on, Lincoln put his trust in Grant, who showed a dogged tenacity and a will to push forward. Grant, with William T. Sherman, launched a coordinated attack against the Confederacy on all fronts.

Crops and livestock were destroyed, rail tracks were ripped up and bent around trees; any useful infrastructure was destroyed.
