I'm very fond of cavalry operations  both Union and Confederate. I am right now reading Samuel J. Martin's "Kill-Cavalry: The Life of Union General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick."  By cavalry I refer to both regular cavalry and partisan raiders.

Many battles interest me, but Gettysburg would have to be one that is particularly compelling because I grew up only miles from the battlefield and visited summer, winter, spring and fall. But that said, I enjoy well written books about any battles well known or more obscure. Each battle has its own peculiarity; its own special history.

As for theaters of the war, I particularly enjoy the Western theater and the Trans-Mississippi.

Around Halloween I like to read Civil War ghost stories...just for fun.
