It's an excellent question. Certainly worthy of more thought than I've just given it now. But, I always enjoy reading what others post and learning from them than I do hearing my own "gas."
Beware, Crazy! It'll drive you nuts bouncing between books and battles and theaters. About 20 years ago I was deep into Antietam and buying books and maps and all that. I had not finished my books (although I kept buying them) when I got diverted into Gettysburg and began buying books and maps on that. Then I met a fellow traveller who got me into the western theater. Then I got into this and another group who diverted me into constitutionality of secession and whether slavery was the chief cause of secession and the subsequent war. And so it goes on.
