You need to look at your title. Everything West of the Mississippi was called the Trans-mississippi. The Western Theater was the name given to the area between the Appalachians and the Mississippi.

Mashall only a few Moderators can make that kind of adjustment and only in their forum. Unfortunately I moderate in WWII and even then I can't change a title there. Would you like for me to ask Sal for you?

How could Grant have taken Cairo because there were no Civil War battles in Egypt.

He did not take Cairo, he marched his men there and set up camp. Remember this is not the fabled city on the denial ribber.

A lot of South Ohio, Indiana and Illinois was settled by Southerners. There were more than a few Confederate sympathizers. It made sense to occupy the place.

Abe Lincoln is a good example of the movement. He was born in Kentucky, moved to Indiana and his father moved them again to Illinois. Lincoln spent a lot of time socializing in Kentucky. His wife was from a plantation there and his brother in laws fought for the Confederacy. One was killed in the Battle of Baton Rouge when one Confederate unit fired into his unit. They were attacking in fog through a cemetery. The cemetery is still there just North of Florida Avenue.
