Not for nothing Hood acknowledging fault is appropriate in that .well, it was his fault. Grant was unaware of the tactical situation (The weather, the condition of Hood's army etc) and tried to manage the situation from several hundred miles away... Schofield was a master self promoteer, and by by giving Hood more credit for the attack, he makes himself look better.
Shouldn't hood have brought up his artillery? In actuality I have a far bigger problem with all of confederate leadership's botching the matter at spring hill which if appropriately managed would have prevented Franklin from occuring....
Just some thoughts..
