Hello there Generals! 

I have a thought about a campaign which could include 3 battles from the not so well known Trans-Mississippi Theatre:

- Minor: Battle of Valverde - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Valverde - drunk Sibley vs. choleric Canby, who would win? Col. Green I presume :)
- Minor: Battle of Glorietta Pass - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Glorieta_Pass (exceptional because of usage of miners descending on ropes to harass the supplies of the CSA, one of the goals could be destroying/routing the supplies, not capturing them as always) 
- Major : Battle of Pea Ridge (Elkhorn Tavern) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Pea_Ridge - Gettysburg of the Trans-Mississippi Theatre, a balanced battle as it was.

Any comments, thoughts?

Think it might spice up the early campaign and show some love to the forgotten Trans-Mississippi Theatre of the war, only Red River Campaign Mansfield is included, presumably in the Cold Harbor campaign.

Still thinking about potential battles from 1864-65, but too much of trench fighting people despise, as I read the ones from Wshington Campaign for instance are often simply omitted.

I would love to see Battle of Pea Ridge.  Got family on dads side that live in that area and well we had members that fought in the that battle too.  Would be interesting to see it in game.

Even as a "major" battle, Pea Ridge was pretty small compared to the other major battles in the game. About 7-8 union brigade vs 10-12 CSA brigades (depending on how they're modelled in the game).

The minor battles would be really small on this game scale.
