John Bell Hood

“In the fall of that year John B. Hood was assigned to duty with the company, and brevet 2nd Lieutenant Hood and I hunted a great deal together, and became very intimate. We engaged in ranching together. He sold out on leaving in the spring, and made money, while I held on and lost money.”  George Crook.  Crook (USMA Class of 1852) describes his friendship with  Hood (USMA Class of 1853) while both were stationed in the Pacific Northwest in 1854. From George Crook His Autobiography edited and arranged by Martin F. Schmitt. Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1946 page 21.
