    Possible locations for the future

    I know this has been talked about for a while now, but people have been asking for other locations such as Gettysburg, Atlanta, Shiloh, Petersburg, and others. Personally in the future after WOR has released I would love to see both 1st and 2nd Manassas and some later battlefields like Vicksburg and Chattanooga, so I am asking what would everyone else like to see for the future?

    My Masters thesis involves Vicksburg and so I will forever vote for the Vicksburg Campaign. Western theatre, new landscape, new regiments, new flags. The Battle of Champion Hill was more of a traditional battle, but then you've got the frontal assaults on the riflepits and breastworks of Vicksburg in May, the Union set of 2,200 lbs. of powder on one of the breastworks and launched an attack on the opening, there's night raids, sharpshooting and battery duels, you've got USCT troops versus Confederate raiders at Milliken's Bend, you've got the opportunity to introduce Timberclads and Ironclads...

    I was down there on Saturday and took this picture of the Third Louisiana Redan. This is what I mean when I say the landscape is totally unique. I feel like most of the other suggestions we have heard would basically look and feel very much the same. Not so with Vicksburg...

    This is the center-right of my present day photo.

    What you see are Union trenches and dugouts.

    Thanks for sharing, pretty much what I expected to see those dugouts must have been massive, fascinating
