Folks,

I've actually wanted to start this thread for quite some time, but never did. We all know that there have been literally thousands of books written about the war, the battles and the people involved. Can you think of any that still need to written?

I've had one stuck in my craw for some time, and the subject was recently brought up in another thread so I thought this would be a good time. The book I'd like to see written (and actually would like to write myself) would be a good biography of John Floyd. It amazes me that no really good book exists on the man which really explores his tenure as Gov. of Va., and Sec. of War. With all the unanswered questions about his actions as Sec. of War, I'm surprised no one has taken it on. Seems to me to be it would be a juicy tome.

As much as I may admire Lincoln, I could do without yet another book on him for the next 10 or 20 years. So how about you - what subjects need a new book?
