I will name 10 civil war campaigns and then I ask you to recommend a book on that campaign. Do as many or as few of the 10 as you like. Also, the book doesn't have to cover the entire campaign; it can be just one small portion of it. I will also give my recommendations:

The 1862 Federal Penetration up the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers (February 1862 - June 1862):  Shiloh and the Western Campaign of 1862 by Edward Cunningham

Jackson's Valley Campaign (March 1862 - June 1862): Stonewall in the Valley: Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign, Spring 1862 by Robert G. Tanner

The Peninsula Campaign (March 1862 - July 1862): Extraordinary Circumstances: The Seven Days Battles by Brian K. Burton

The Northern Virginia Campaign (August 1862): Stonewall Jackson at Cedar Mountain by Robert K. Krick

The Maryland Campaign (September 1862): Taken at the Flood: Robert E. Lee and Confederate Strategy in the Maryland Campaign of 1862 by Joseph L. Harsh

The Vicksburg Campaign (December 1862 - July 1863): Ninety-Eight Days: A Geographer's View of the Vicksburg Campaign by Warren E. Grabau

The Gettysburg Campaign (June 1863 - July 1863): Retreat from Gettysburg: Lee, Logistics, and the Pennsylvania Campaign by Kent Masterson Brown

The Overland Campaign (May 1864 - June 1864): To the North Anna River: Grant and Lee, May 13-25, 1864 by Gordon C. Rhea

The Atlanta Campaign (May 1864 - September 1864): The Campaign for Atlanta by William R. Scaife

The Carolinas Campaign (February 1865 - March 1865): Last Stand in the Carolinas: The Battle of Bentonville by Mark L. Bradley

See here if you're not sure which battles belong in which campaign named above.
