1. The English Civil War
It's astonishing that no one has made a film about the English Civil War. From 1642 to 1651, the people of England had to decide whether they would fight for the King or for Parliament. A story that would resonate greatly in the United States, for ultimately, the office of King was abolished and King Charles I beheaded. The beautiful irony is that the commander who lead the parliamentary forces, after fighting a war against the very idea of kingship, decides to dissolve Parliament and rule as "Lord Protector"; a king in all but name, leaving the office to his son upon his death.
