Hellcat,

We believe this was taken in late 1863 or early 1864 and that one of his legs is a prosthetic with a boot on. Hood was never known to have used crutches except after he was wounded at Chickamauga. He certainly did not need crutches following his arm wound at Gettysburg. So although his legs look "normal," obviously this is a posed still and staged to look thusly.
