  • Never Sherman!
  • Sherman's Total War
  • Burn all the livestock! Tear down all the railroads! Take all the food! Leave but nothing men!
  • Yes sir!
  • Atlanta, Georgia

  • Woohoo!
  • William Tecumseh Sherman circles Atlanta and faces Confederate General, John B. Hood. Hood's forces put up resistance, but Sherman laid siege and forces Hood to abandon the city.
  • Sherman killed a lot of livestock, tore up railroads lines and fields, and took food. Sherman's march was a strategy called "Total War." This involved not only targeting the enemy's army, but also its land and people. He thought that the horrors of war to the South could help end the war.
  • Sherman defeated Union forces, defending the city under Hood. Sherman burned most of the buildings, and then headed south towards Savannah - where he will begin "Sherman's March To The Sea."
