  • Sherman's March to The Sea
  • From November to December 21,1864 General t. Sherman marched from Atl. to Savannah and burned everything on the way.
  • His march to sea was also called The Savannah Campaign. This military campaign started in Atlanta and his troops burned and destroyed farms, bridges, mills, factories,etc.
  • I marched 285 miles from Atlanta to Savannah including the capital of Georgia. Which at the time was Milledgeville.
  • Savannah, did not want the same fate as Atlanta did 285 miles ago. So they surrendered to me on December 22,1864. I gave Savannah to president Lincoln as a Christmas Present because I did not want to destroy it.
  • After my March the south went into crisis, with the military and after a month's rest in Savannah, My troops and I went to North Carolina , and we surrendered on April 9,1865 at the Battle of Appomattox Court. This ended the Civil War.
