At the Franklin battlefield,there is a site called Winstead Hill. It was basically Gen. Hood's forward observation post and the battle started with a flare fired from the hill. There is a memorial area there called "Brigadier's Walk" for the 5 CSA Brigadier Generals killed at Franklin. I visited there on 6/8/2017.Six Confederate Generals killed that day.
Reb generals were pretty cheap that day.A lot of books have been written about the battle. I've read a coupla and a coupla other books that were partly about it. Here's a link to the Civil War Trust description of the battle. Lotta other good sources cited on that page:
Sorry I didn't catch this bump on Wednesday. I don't get into the "What if...?" stuff too much. Everybody has their own opinion and can cite all their evidence and it always circles back to the same place...what actually happened.The Army of the Tenn. was poorly led by their commanding generals. Davis should have put Forrest in charge but he was not, "West Point." The South was not strong enough not to use the best possible leaders.
I am not talking about the Generals under Hood, they made their feelings known. Obeying any order is not always the best option. I guess that is why I am a loner, if I am going to fail it is going to be because of My decisions.
