      The blame has to be pointed directly at Division and Corps command. Hood could not be everywhere at every time, and, when he wasn't there, his plans fell apart.


      During the three battles in July, 1864, the blame could be assigned more or less to Hardee at Peachtree Creek and could certainly be assigned to S. D. Lee for Ezra Church.  Hood should have taken into account the difficulty Hardee would have encountered in the Battle of Atlanta.

        When told a  problem existed Hood stayed in bed and did nothing. That is not leadership.
