Johan, I agree that the war was won in the west.  But I read somewhere that there were more battles in Virginia than in any other state, with Tennessee second on the list.  The newspapers followed the armies, not vice versa.

Here's an extreme example: Winchester, VA, in the Shenandoah Valley, changed hands something like 72 times.
