Seth Blattner, a junior at Trinity Episcopal School, presents today's Natchez History Minute about the shelling of Natchez by the USS Essex on this day, September 2 in 1862. The Union gunboat shelled the city for over two hours in retaliation for the killing of one sailor and the wounding of several others by a crowd of Natchezians.
