In response to tigerreb's post, I was leaning towards lesser portrayed battles.  Forrest, now that's a movie idea.  Forrest makes Patton look like a fairy.  I was thinking about how Donelson and Shiloh could be combined in a novel on the same scale as The Killer Angels...With Forrest, you have a lot of material to choose from, although I didn't have a biographical piece in mind.  Younglobo, I agree with the part about naming your son Forrest, haha.

I was also thinking about Pea Ridge as a historical fiction novel or movie...I mean, it has all the elements and tragedy; the lost Southern opportunity.  And Fort Stedman, the Army of Northern Virginia's last assault.
