Unfortunately like you, don't have many books on the western theater other than Smiths - Champions Hill, Joiners - Red River Campaign, regimental diaries - Williams - Chicago Merchantile Battery, all excellent reads on their respective topics. For those out there, what about Shiloh, Vicksburg, Franklin, Atlanta authors?

We must be on the same page, have all of the above. As an aside, I've made a point to give Nolan a call the next time I'm working in Indianopolis since I have ancestors in the 2nd Wisconsin. You're correct, believe that Rhea is the best writor when it comes to the Wilderness/Overland Campaign. As you stated, numerous Gettysburg guides still use Coddington as the go to book for studying for the test but imho Pfanz gives a better more detailed description in his numerous texts.
