John Bell Hood takes over command of the Army of Tennessee this day in history, 1864

The Army of Tennessee pattern battle flag adorns this rare belt plate worn by John Bell Hood.

His French manufactured cavalry officer’s saber is an interesting choice for an infantry officer.

This uniform is in the Museum of the Confederacy, Richmond
