- Spring Hill, Tennessee
It wasn't Franklin that was the blunder. It happened the day before at Spring Hill. When you understand Spring Hill, you'll understand why Hood did what he did at Franklin.What do people think was the biggest mistake of the war in terms of bad tactics and loss of men. The ones that come to mind are Grant @ Cold Harbour, Sherman @ Kennesaw Mountain, John B Hood @ Franklin , Lee @ Gettysburg Pickett's Charge. For me they are all bad but Franklin was the worst.
