|Given that pschosis is a mental disorder characterized by symptoms that indicate impaired contact with reality, was the attack on Franklin pschotically aggressive? The reported rage in Hood over the failure to stop Schofield at Spring Hill coupled with his own poor physical condition led to him ordering the assault with only two of his three corps, without most of his artillery and against the advice of Forrest and Cheatham amongst others. Facing the formidable defences at Franklin was this a momentary loss of touch with reality? Maybe.
