Patton, I would play it out differently though.
Morgan Freeman. He get's to play every historical character. & who doesn't love morgan freeman?
Murray N. Rothbard because he was an ardent supporter of laissez-faire capitalism.
Amelia Earhart, as she had a sense of adventure and was not afraid to follow her dreams regardless of the mysterious outcome surrounding her disappearance some 75 plus years ago.
If I had to choose a male historical character, it would be Benjamin Franklin. He was so wise, made a lot of sense and is responsible for many inventions that most Americans or people in general have no clue about. His common sense and love of knowledge and his family makes him intriguing.
