Thanks for the excellent replies. I rather like the idea of keeping a chronology, if only because I get a thrill when memoirs overlap.

David White - good point about early Carolina. Part of my reason for starting this thread was a sense that the natural compartmentalism of the war into east and west, and the ongoing arguments about which part won the war, always felt too simplistic (if you think too much about the east it's easy to get the impression that Grant appeared as some sort of saviour figure for the Union Army, ignoring his accomplishments on in the West). I currently feel unable
to pin down precisely why, however.
