You mentioned that Hood's Army did not hear Schofield's retreat at Spring Hill.  I have read several books, recently, about Spring Hill/Franklin, and in all the books, the soldiers in Frank Cheatham's Corps heard Schofield's army passing.  The problem was with the Confederate command - Hood was camped southeast of Spring Hill and a general lethargy existed with his corps companders.  They were all concerned about making any major decisions.  Hood's army should have bagged all three of Schofield's corps at Spring Hill.
