I think first off it needs to be said that I've never seen Grant get a free pass for his actions at Cold Harbor. In fact, I often see it used as evidence to support the argument that he was a butcher.

Secondly, there would have been no need for an attack at Franklin if Hood had actually been on the field at Spring Hill to coordinate his forces. Not to mention the confusing nature of his orders.

Hood would probably get more sympathy from others if he weren't a two faced liar, took responsibility for his actions, and didn't accuse his men of cowardice after getting them all killed.
