[civilwarwest] John Bell Hood
- Hood's life has, to me, always been an enigma resembling a Shakespearean
plot. His outstanding success as a Division commander contrasts tragically
with his performance in the West.
After the war he fathered twelve children, half of whom died along with
his wife and himself due to the fever.
My question is; What happened to the surviving children? Were they
adopted by members of the Texas Brigade,the people of New Orleans, or, did
they simply disappear into History's mist ?
Any information would be appreciated.
No doubt about that, Steve.

When told a problem existed Hood stayed in bed and did nothing. That is not leadership.
And either is placing a one legged, one arm man in command of a Army.
I place the Plame were it belongs Jefferson Davis.
