      Why discuss a time frame in such narrow limits.  The planning of these events occurred well before the action happened.  Afterwards, the effects certainly after the events with some taking longer to be noticed or felt.  As a example, it can be argued that the planning for Grant's river campaign (Fts Henry/Donelson) started in December, 1861 following the Battle of Belmont.  The beginning stage for the Battle of Belmont was in November and December, 1861.  The effects of Shiloh and Corinth continued long after the actual events.  To hold to a narrow time frame is nit-picking.

      Jan-May would be the logical separation: Zollicoffer is killed, Donelson falls to Grant, Buell moves south to Nashville, both armies converge on Shiloh, Halleck takes Corinth, New Orleans falls to Farragut.

      So the logical periods are Jan-May, Jun-August, Oct-Dec.
