Could you accept more type-ins? Perhaps "French and Indian War" for Seven Years' War since that's what the part of it that was fought in the Americas was called? Perhaps also specify where you want a specific battle and where you're asking for a war? For example, World War 2 was not accepted for Battle of Midway, so can you make it obvious that you want the specific battle in that case?
