I’m curious to hear what your favorite battles to study are? I’d have to say the two I’m most interested in are Gettyburg and Antietam.
Interesting question @P.B. Speegle! I hope a lot of members will respond. I continue to enjoy learning about Gettysburg, but I am fascinated by the Battle of the Wilderness. It was the first in Ulysses S. Grant's Overland Campaign, the terrain was a thick area of brush and my favorite Civil War general, Lieutenant General James Longstreet was severely wounded there by friendly fire.I’m curious to hear what your favorite battles to study are?

Agree. The best book I've ever read on the Siege of Vicksburg is Ed Bearss' The Vicksburg Campaign, Vol. III.UCVrelics.com wrote: The other burg Vicksburg
