      I think there are standard works, sure, but Coddington seems to have
      taken on the aura of holy scripture.

      You know, like all of Sears' books.

      I think there are a few that are generally considered to be the
      "standard".
      Hennessy's "Return to Bull Run", Bradley's "Last Stand in the
      Carolinas", O'Reilly's "The Fredericksburg Campaign", Bearss's "The
      Vicksburg Campaign", Cozzens' "This Terrible Sound", Fonvielle's "The
      Wilmington Campaign".

      Jeff;

      I have a copy of the first edition of Coddington's book, being given it
      by my parents at the time it was first published. I believe you are
      right about that, since Coddington was the first author to try to take a
      view of the entire campaign from both sides and seeing how both
      commanders led their armies.
