John Bell Hood: The Rise, Fall, and Resurrection of a Confederate General El Dorado Hills, CA October 19, 2016 – Author Sam Hood will be giving a talk and be signing copies of his books.
John Bell Hood was one of the Confederacy’s most successful – and enigmatic – generals. He died at 48 after a brief illness in August 1879, leaving behind the first draft of his memoirs Advance and Retreat: Personal Experiences in the United States and Confederate States Armies. Published Posthumously the following year, the memoirs immediately became as controversial as their author. A careful and balanced examination of these "controversies,” however, coupled with the discovery of Hood’s personal papers (which were long considered lost) finally sets the record straight in John Bell Hood: The Rise,and Resurrection of a Confederate General.
