The horrific battle at Franklin is told like never before. From what truly motivated John Bell Hood to launch such a desperate attack, to the vital role of Federal units either forgotten or ignored, the reader will see the confrontation portrayed in an entirely new light. Events such as the Confederate assault on the Federal left flank, the actions of the Confederate Missouri Brigade, General John Adams’ death, General William Bate’s attack, and how the Federal army emerged victorious, are given the thorough examination they have so long been denied.
For Cause & For Country offers a balanced and richly detailed study of the battles that helped to decide the outcome of the Civil War. Students of Spring Hill and Franklin will appreciate the abundance of new information which will show that the battles had a far greater scope and importance than many previously realized. Those not familiar with the story will find themselves drawn to the incredible events of late 1864, when Middle Tennessee stood center stage as the divided nation defined and repaired itself through blood and fire.
