Hood’s Tennessee Campaign was called “a desperate venture of a desperate man” by Jordan and Pryor in their biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest. The Army of Tennessee which Hood commanded had suffered irreparable damage during the fighting around Atlanta, but, true to his nature as a soldier Hood sought the offensive, and Middle Tennessee seemed the most logical objective.
