Hood 26 May 1879", contents relate to a recently published book by the late General Richard Taylor (son of Zachary Taylor) about the Tennessee campaign in 1864, full transcript included

VERY FINE POST-WAR LETTER FROM CONFEDERATE PRESIDENT JEFFERSON DAVIS DISCUSSING GENERAL JOHN BELL HOOD AND THE 1864 FRANKLIN-NASHVILLE CAMPAIGN.

This letter contains fascinating content by President Davis critiquing General Taylor's book and asks that General Walthall tell General Hood that he had recently called but failed to find him. In relation to the failed campaign against William Tecumseh Sherman's army, Davis states "So I told you when the matter passed beyond the stage at which the pursuit of Sherman was feasible, I was one of those who wished more than was expected from the invasion of Tennessee and objected to the tone of unmeasured censure heaped upon it after the failure."
