The Battle of Nashville
Again my friends, all is not well. The Union is obviously stronger than us, our hope and morale is slowing slipping away...
Thomas wanted to attack General Hood again on December 10. However, this was delayed. He launched The Battle of Nashville on December 15.
This battle lasted for two days. Thomas aimed for Hood's left flank, and the other men on his right. Schofield and Wilson kept the army closed. Everything was going according to plan, for the Yanks that is...
As for us, the only thing keeping us alive was Nathan Bedford Forrest. He was responsible for keeping Hood's army in tact and with little destruction.
Thomas used a total of 49,775 men, 3,061 of which became casualties. Hood used 23,210 men, and probably had a loss of 1,500 men.
This is the end of our Army of Tennessee. Hood was removed and replaced for not meeting expectations. That left only Lee's Army of Northern Virginia.
Now, with little left, we rely of hope...
