General John Bell Hood Lecture at the Historic Granbury Opera House in Hood County

Here’s Professor Steven Woodworth of Texas Christian University giving a very good presentation on the life of John Bell Hood. Unfortunately, we can’t hear the questions at the end, though we do hear Professor Woodworth’s answers with no problems.

The video’s description reads, “Dr Steven Woodworth, Author and Professor of History at TCU was invited by the Bridge Street History Center in Granbury, Texas to give a lecture on General John Bell Hood. This lecture is significant for Granbury as it is the county seat of Hood County which is named in honor of General Hood. The lecture took place in front of a capacity crowd at the Historic Granbury Opera House.”

  1. Woodworth’s illuminating writing makes him one of the giants of recent (last 25 years) Civil War history and especially the western theater.

    ‘Six Armies’ and ‘Nothing but Victory’ are great reading as well as great history.
