About this product
- DescriptionLove him or hate him, the actions of William Tecumseh Sherman in Georgia in 1864 transformed the Civil War in the space of seven months. From a conflict which was still very much in doubt as to its victor in early 1864, by the time Sherman had captured Atlanta, marched to the Sea, and captured Savannah, the will to fight had largely left the South, and the outcome of the War had become a foregone conclusion. This book tells the story of both Sherman's Atlanta Campaign and his March to the Sea, through the mechanism of looking at what remains today (monuments, buildings, trenches, etc.) at sites associated with those events. This edition contains 75 color photos and lithographs, as well as a number of black and white engravings.
