Improve Appomattox Campaign article and articles on individual battles of that campaign; four are already satisfactorily covered (as far as I am concerned) although two of those need editing.
Add biographies of notable Civil War officers or other notable persons of that era or railroads existing at that time about whom or which there are no articles.
Improve or expand articles on Civil War battles or biographies which are stubs or need additions or citations.
Add articles on notable smaller battles or engagements of the American Civil War, with concentration on 1864 and 1865 during 2014 and 2015.
American Civil War: Improve West Virginia campaign and individual battles, except Philippi which is already adequately covered.
American Revolution: Improve or expand articles on battles or biographies which are stubs (few) or need additions or citations.
Add or improve or expand biographies for Burgesses of Virginia House of Burgesses.
