      IMHO, Hood was an excellent Brigade and Division commander.  However, when it came to commanding a Corps or commanding an army, he was defineately out of his league.  As far as his West Point training, I cannot help remember that he would have flunked out if it had not been for his room mate, James McPherson tutoring him in math.
