Well Hood shouldn't have hared off to Tennessee if he was so keen on fighting Sherman. Based on his pointless assaults against Thomas, Hood did a lot more damage to southerners than Sherman ever did.It was because Sherman was frustrated on the battlefield by brilliant tacticians like Forrest that he turned his attention to waging war on noncombatants. This was a desperate move & quite unforgivable. In Savannah,Georgia he bragged that 80% of the devastation he had caused was " simple waste and destruction." And Sherman had the gall to call Forrest the "Devil", yet Sherman was the General without any Conscience because of his violent loathing of the South!
