Thanks for a useful poll. Even if not played as history, it suggests a possible candidate for a hidden scenario.

I visited the Palo Alto battlefield. Interesting place. I don't recommend going in August unless you like 95 degrees with 50 to 60% humidity. There was online a Regimental Fire & Fury scenario for the battle. Complete OOB. I might have to try this one myself.

14th NJ Vol, do you have a link to that F&F OOB

I've also visited Palo Alto and liked it. I would love to game it some day. But my favorite MAW battle to read about and want to game is Buena Vista.
