|According to The Civil War Trust website Hood's assault at Franklin was more intense than Pickett's charge. At Franklin 20,000 Confederates charged over 1.75 miles of ground. They would suffer 7,000 casualties in the process. Pickett's charge was by 12,500 men over 1 mile of ground and suffered 6,500 casualties. I realize Pickett's charge was the highwater mark of the Confederacy and all but why is Hood's assault barely mentioned? Was it because the media was all out east and the Western Theater was given less attention?
