Beside Grant, Rosecrans comes to mind here (start him as a * in late '61 in West Virginia). Buell could start the game as a * locked in California until Oct '61. Etc. Find out where these guys were as lowly *'s, start 'em there, and let fate determine their courses!

I like how most generals start in the capitol, and the player gets to decide where to send them.
That's good game design. Force the player to make decisions. Starting generals like Zolli in Tennessee just locks the players into a historical reenactment. That's boring.
