|My only point was that had Spring Hill not happened, Hood arrives at Franklin first. Then what? River's just as flooded for him as it was for Schofield. Would have probably set up along the same Columbia Pike line. Would Schofield have sat behind Winstead and waited for the river to recede? Would Hood have headed for Nashville when it did, or decide to take on Schofield? Either way, history as we know it would have been re-written. Would the end result be different? Nope. But the narrative would. Either way, since the original post said blunder, not reversal, I'll stand by Spring Hill being a huge one.
