the Modocs in California and Oregon led by Captain Jack fought the US in several battles inflicting heavy casulaties on them. the Modoc were eventually defeated. this war deserves a campaign book.

Why does it deserve a campaign book? You keep saying that your suggestions deserve to be acknowledged, yet your arguments sound more like simple summaries from Wikipedia rather than anything of actual substance.

Check out Men-at-Arms 418: American Indians of the Pacific Northwest – http://www.ospreypublishing.com/store/American-Indians-of-the-Pacific-Northwest_9781841767413 – it covers the Modoc War and Captain Jack in part. As for a Campaign on it, I don't think it's a big enough topic to fit with the present list. Who knows, perhaps in future?

As the Indian Wars go, the Modoc War was something of an anomaly; notable as a precursor to the trench warfare of WWI and its unique setting and adversary, but that's it.

Not sure it deserves a full Campaign title.
