|I think you could have some fun creating a Gideon Pillow website; you could open it with a flash screen showing him fleeing Ft. Donelson in a row boat. Then announce in bold letters: Gideon Pillow, Presidential law partner, Major General USA, Brigadier General, CSA... Apparently the Confederacy was a better judge of character. Then you could have chapters like “Bad boy gets coal in his stocking” talking about him getting sued for confiscating the coal company’s assets during the Civil War or “Pillow fight results in reassignment of Winfield Scott,” talking about Scott’s and Pillow’s feud after the Mexican War.
