Howdy Gents!,

Looking over many Campaign games I've identified several missing battles. Some are small and insignifigent but others are major engagments that were simply skipped from the current releases. If you could add or request some of these battles, which would you add or know that are missing and should be included? Here are three I can think of right out of the gate. As the topic progresses, I'll keep updating a master list under this topic.

Scenario:..………….…..Proposed Campaign Series:....Supporting Info:
Brice's Cross Road...……....Atlanta Campaign...…...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Brice%27s_Cross_Roads
Bentonville Battle...……....Atlanta Campaign...…….https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Bentonville
Seige of Port Hudson.......Vicksburg Campaign.....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Port_Hudson

I remember Brice's Crossroads was modded a number of years ago, and Berto hinted that Bentonville is in the works, probably as part of a Carolinas Campaign.

I do agree that Port Hudson would have been a good fit for the Vicksburg Campaign module.

Hey Cam,

I went to the Cartography Office and Scenario Center forum and saw the topic but there is no link for a download for the Bentonville battle. I also found the old The Cartography Office site and those battle aren't listed there either. Maybe an update to that old link would be great to direct members to find additional scenario downloads or custom "What-if" battles?

All of those mentioned, and quite a few more, are planned to be covered in the final title of the series, which is in the works...

Along with many others, I'm still waiting for the Shenandoah battles, both 1862 and 1864. Hopefully, the final disk is a Shenandoah disk?

No, Shenandoah is a separate title and just about complete...*should* see the light of day by the end of the summer if all goes well.

Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away, I'm bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah,
I love your daughter,
Away, you rolling river.
For her I'd cross
Your roaming waters,
Away, I'm bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.
'Tis seven years
since last I've seen you,
Away, you rolling river.
'Tis seven years
since last I've seen you,
Away, we're bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away, you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away, we're bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Far away, you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
Just to be near you,
Far away, far away.
'Cross the wide Missouri.
