Far as CW/WBTS books, I'll probably begin in chronological order; beginning with Pea Ridge by Shea first since it took place in March 7th-8th 1862. Then read The Darkest Days of the War: The Battles of Iuka and Corinth by Cozzens next since it took place in October 3rd-4th 1862. Finally; Fields of Blood: The Prairie Grove Campaign by Shea that took place in December 7th 1862. I can read Westerners in Gray: The Men and Missions of the Elite Fifth Missouri Infantry by Tucker anytime. I just recently ordered 4 of these books online so have to wait until they arrive in the mail.

Reading General Lee’s Immortals by Michael C Hardy. It details the Branch-Lane brigade during the course of the war. Very good if you want to learn about this very active brigade.

New book about General Phil Kearny coming out soon that I am looking forward to. Waiting anxiously for volume 2 of Scott Hartwig's book on Antietam.

Just back from the library and got Daniel Stashower's The Hour of Peril, a book-length treatment of the 1861 'Baltimore Plot' to kill Abraham Lincoln.
