Confederate General John Bell Hood (1831-1879) was trained at West Point and fought in the United States Civil War under Robert E. Lee in 1862 and 1863 at the battles of Antietam, Gettysburg (where he was severely wounded in the arm) and Chickamauga (where he lost his leg). In July 1864, Hood took command of the Army of the Tennessee and fought unsuccessfully in the Battle of Franklin. Hood resigned his command on 23 January 1865, reverting back to his permanent rank of lieutenant general and surrendered to Federal authorities in Natchez, Mississippi on 31 May 1865.
