i think gettysburg got the more attention because of the union's situation in the east. The union forces fighting in the western theater had won many times, the eastern theater was a comeback story for the north. I think of it as a movie with a football team that is defeated in every game and is thought to be the underdogs until the time was necessary for them to win, then became nearly undefeated. Of course i think ya'll are correct too. How long did Hood's attack at franklin last? I know Pickett's charge lasted approx. 50 mins and the two sides sustained about 10,000 casualties.
