I don't know but I have an opinion. A skirmish is a minor or small scale fight, usually out ahead of two opposing main bodies. I'm voting that an affair is of lesser volatility, maybe even with no shots fired or a fight wasn't even involved because one side overpowered the other (e.g. lynch mob or a newspaper office burned or ...). Now if you really want to muddy the waters, lets throw an engagement and/or action into this mix. They may be just the word that the author felt comfortable with at the moment.

May 4, 1864, exactly 150 years ago today, is the start date of the "Campaign Scenario" of Campaign Overland, which I worked on for over five years prior to publication. Although I worked intimately with the dates of May and Jun, '64, it gives me pause on this day to contemplate what will transpire between now and next month: The awful fighting of Wilderness and Spotsylvania, the intricate maneuvers through the Tidewater, culminating in the final bloodletting at Cold Harbor on June 5, only to be followed by the long march to Petersburg and more killing yet to come. I hope we have learned that once is enough for any country, and that our current difficulties can be solved by the ballot instead of the bullet.
