Without knowing which battles you're specifically talking about, I think a number of authors will talk about an entire campaign, rather than just the fighting.  Additionally, as you surmise, some take into account preceding actions.  Take Chickamauga, for instance.  October 19 and 20 are what most would consider the actual battle, but a number of accounts I've read consider the actions on October 18 as part of the fight.
