        Thanks Sam for those suggested works. Actually I am familiar with
        these three books, but I will go back to them and check their
        footnotes for additional source material.

        Specifically, I was looking for journal articles, dissertations, and
        or other sources of information which focus on Cassville and/or that
        period of the Atlanta campaign after the battle of Resaca and before
        Sherman left the railroad on his Western thrust towards Dallas.

            A better explanation is that Cassville was Hood's first battle not
            under the direct, eyeball supervision of immediate superiors. He had
            to think and act on his own and was spooked by a small force of
            cavalry on his far right flank.

            Every previous action had Longstreet, Lee or Jackson very near by for
            onsulatation and responsibility.
