Grant is not label reckless but is called a Butcher by some but the point is that Grant's reasoning at Cold Harbor was similar to Hood's reasoning at Franklin. Cold Harbor is only a blemish on Grant's record but Franklin is a steak through Hood's record damming him for life.

You may want to bring up Spring Hill but that is a side tracking from my original questions. Spring Hill is another discuss about when is it the proper time to consume adult beverages.

What's this point about blaming others? Hood throws blame around rightfully or wrongly at his subordinates so that is his management style. Hood was the commander of the Army and in the end he took blame and resigned his command after Nashville.

Iron neither one or anyone else has answered my questions so maybe Hood was more then justify in his actions at Franklin after all.....
