Stephen Hood, a descendent of Confederate General John Bell Hood, draws on John Bell Hood's posthumously published memoir and his personal papers, along with accounts of generals and other officers who served with Hood during the Civil War, to confirm the validity of Hood's version of his career in his memoir. The book includes b&w historical illustrations. Stephen Hood is past president of the Board of Directors of the Confederate Memorial Hall Museum.
