Four noes in a row--at least not that I'm aware of. Hood was in the east long before Banks was in Louisiana. Balloons were used almost exclusively during the Peninsula Campaign. (Interesting side-bar on that: southern ladies gave their silk dresses so the Confederacy could float a balloon or two. Little came of the effort.)

Burke is either taking extreme poetic license, or is extending the fact of Hood's death in Louisiana to place him in the story. After all, who remembers Loring?
