Gregg, I live in Washington Dc, about 4 blocks from the Library of Congress and a 15 min walk from the national archives. If I ever need information I can get it anytime I have a day off or a Saturday. I'm not here to disrespect Eric or anyone on this great site. I just felt his tone of words on his first post to me was was disrespectful. I treat people how they treat me. I respect Eric has put in 10 years of research on the battle of Franklin. I am not even remotely interested in the battle but common sence and records I found stated that at 3pm Hood started the attack. The attack lasted for 50 mins. There were no troops from S.D.Lee's Corps present at that time. Thats all I was trying to say.
