      Well Hood's tactics didnt change in his entire career.  When he was a lieutenant in the 2nd US Cavlary in July of 1857, he led a detachment of the 2nd into a fight near Devil's River in south Texas.  In the fight with Commanches that followed, Liet. Hood would lead 17 troopers against 45 natives who held the high ground and were largely concealed.  Hood was wounded with an arrow through his left hand, which he yanked free in the fight, along with three other troopers, and had two men killed.  He was forced to fall back, but was not pursued by the Commanches.
