Hood after Franklin

Postby cruces » Mon Jul 23, 2012 2:17 am

You have to wonder why General Hood didn't just retreat after Franklin.

From this site:http://www.brettschulte.net/CWBlog/2012/07/22/de-aragon-the-chronicle-of-a-confederate-surgeon-part-14/



December 1, the day following the battle (Franklin), virtually every house in Franklin was turned into a hospital to accommodate the thousands of Confederate wounded. While the surgeons toiled to cope with the overwhelming numbers of mangled and torn men, Hood urged the remains of his army on to Nashville


The debacle of Nashville follows. Nice coverage.
