Future "CW Campaigns in the Heartland" titles

I found a list of planned titles for SIUP's Civil War Campaigns in the Heartland series at the back of the Chattanooga Campaign book. Having completed only 3 to this point, looking forward all the way through 18 volumes is pretty ambitious!
 
4. Vicksburg: Mississippi Blitzkrieg, May 1863
5. The Tennessee Campaign of 1864: Spring Hill, Franklin, and Nashville
6. The Vicksburg Assaults
7. Forts Henry and Donelson
8. Vicksburg Besieged
9. The Kentucky Campaign of 1862
10. Vicksburg: To Chickasaw Bayou
11. The Atlanta Campaign from Rocky Face Ridge to Oostenaula: The Battle of Resaca
12. Vicksburg: Grant's Winter Endeavors
13. The Atlanta Campaign from the Oostenaula to the Etowa: Dallas, New Hope Church, 14. and Pickett's Mill
15. The Atlanta Campaign from the Etowa to the Chattahoochee: The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain
16. Iuka and Corinth
17. Peachtree Creek
18. The Battle of Atlanta, July 22, 1864

    Good Grief! What ambition as you say. I mean, Gallagher didn't even get through all of the Eastern Theater campaigns in his essay books (ex. Second Bull Run and Petersburg).

    I hope the volume that includes Pickett's Mill has a essay on Ambrose Bierce and his account of the battle.

    1. Hello Drew

      Thanks for the information. A little surprised there is no Stones River. Would also like to see something on Mobile Bay.

      I like the idea of something on Mobile. Stones River is a odd omission.

  2. 5 volumes on one campaign (Vicksburg) is pretty remarkable.

    Don,
    I agree. A volume on Mobile operations, both land and sea, would make a great addition. The two that interest me the most are the Kentucky and Iuka-Corinth campaigns.

    Don highlights something I noticed when they first issued this list - no Stones River. Odd, to say the least, since all we really have out there is McDonough and Cozzens, as well as Daniels' imminent Shiloh-style book, which wouldn't seem to eliminate the kind of narrow focus these essays take. The strange thing about the Gallagher series is that I don't believe that they ever intended to include either fight at Bull Run.
