Perhaps there is a John Bell Hood expert out there.  I am reading Robert Hicks's A Separate Country and I am curious to know if Hood expressed any remorse for his disasterous tenure as commander of the Army of Tennessee, especially for the Battle of Franklin.

from what i have read he blamed his troops for the disasters he implimented. But Hood was a great division commander just a terriable army commander

Somewhere in the ether, Naim, is a Hood Site run by a direct descendant (or so he says).

And, with csa, I'm unaware of any expression of remorse. Also, again with CSA, independent command was a touch beyond his ability.

Do a search of the archives. More than several threads discuss Hood. Search also under J.E. Johnston.
