      I stand corrected,so under that situation Hood did win
      Franklin.Won the battle,lost the heart of a once great
      Army,went a long way to losing "the cause",the war.
      I think Hood would have been better off,losing this battle,but
      in the end,he was going to lose,unless someone feels
      without Franklin,Hood would have had a chance in Nashville.
