More About William Tecumseh Sherman by Taft Johnson
 
 
 
Overview
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Union General William Tecumseh Sherman was famously described as "the first modern general" by military historian B. H. Liddell Hart. He's been celebrated as a military strategist, but his "scorched earth" policies have received their fair share of criticism. Sherman served under General Ulysses S. Grant in 1862 and 1863 during the campaigns that led to the fall of the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River and culminated with the routing of the Confederate armies in Tennessee. In 1864, Sherman succeeded Grant as the Union commander in the Western Theater. He proceeded to lead his troops to the capture of Atlanta, a military success that contributed to the President Lincoln's re-election. Sherman's subsequent march through Georgia and the Carolinas further undermined the Confederacy's ability to continue fighting. This must-have book for Civil War enthusiasts recounts Sherman's life, revisiting the vast impact he had on American history.
