As far as missed opportunities go, I would like to throw in Glendale and McClemore's Cove for the Confederates. For the Federals I say Hooker not counterattacking Lee at Chancellorsville with his 2 remaining corps.

Fort Donelson may have been the absolute dumbest blunder of the war. No matter how many times I read about it I still have to shake my head at the sheer lunacy of the whole episode. It has to rank up there with some of those War of 1812 disasters.
