An archival premium Quality art print of The Battle of Nashville published by Kurz and Allison in 1891 for sale by Brandywine General Store. This picture shows the Union soldiers firing cannons at the Confederate soldiers, who are surrendering and waving white truce flags. The Battle of Nashville was fought on December 15 and 16, 1864 and was a bad defeat for the Confederacy. The leader of the Union forces was George H. Thomas and John Bell Hood was the CSA commander. The United States army had 3,060 men either killed or wounded, while the count for the Confederate soldiers was over 6,000 killed or wounded. General John Bell Hood had mortally wounded his Army of Tennessee two weeks previous at the Battle of Franklin and at the Battle of Nashville the once proud Army of Tennessee was killed outright, never to fight again in the Civil War. Hood and the Army retreated to Tupelo Mississippi and Hood was never given another command. Civil War art print #03
