Sherman S Civil War


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The first major modern edition of the wartime correspondence of General William T. Sherman, this volume features more than 400 letters written between the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and the day Sherman bade farewell to his troops in 1865. Together, they trace Sherman's rise from obscurity to become one of the Union's most famous and effective warriors. Arranged chronologically and grouped into chapters that correspond to significant phases in Sherman's life, the letters--many of which have never before been published--reveal Sherman's thoughts on politics, military operations, slavery and emancipation, the South, and daily life in the Union army, as well as his reactions to such important figures as General Ulysses S. Grant and President Lincoln. Lively, frank, opinionated, discerning, and occasionally extremely wrong-headed, these letters mirror the colorful personality and complex mentality of the man who wrote them. They offer the reader an invaluable glimpse of the Civil War as Sherman saw it.

Home Letters Of General Sherman


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Who was William Tecumseh Sherman? Before the American Civil War, he was an obscure military man. In the early days of the conflict, he was considered by some to be insane. At the end of the war, he was considered one of America's greatest heroes and generals. Brilliant, erratic, and a force of nature, Sherman cut a swath across the South that is now a part of world history. In these intimate letters to family, you see a side of Sherman you perhaps have not seen before. From a young man writing to his future wife, to the general in charge of an army, to the man in his last years, these are the private letters Sherman sent home. This collection was passed on to Marc Antony DeWolfe Howe (of the Atlantic Monthly) by Sherman's daughter. Here are his opinions on politics and politicians, his fellow generals, his friend Grant, and the horrors of war. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.

General Sherman S Official Account Of His Great March


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In late 1864, General William Tecumseh Sherman took 62,000 men (55,000 infantry, 5,000 cavalry, and 2,000 artillerymen manning 64 guns) in two divided columns on a 300-mile march from the captured city of Atlanta to Savannah on the sea. It was a daring and unprecedented maneuver, extending his army far beyond supply lines. But it was successful, and brought the South's infrastructure and economy to its knees. The Operation was devastating to Georgia and the Confederacy. Sherman himself estimated that the campaign had inflicted $100 million in damage in 1864 dollars. But the march was not without controversy. The scorched-earth policy of the campaign made Sherman's name despised in the South. In this fascinating report, Sherman makes his official accounting to congress for his action. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.

William Tecumseh Sherman And The Settlement Of The West


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

William Tecumseh Sherman is known primarily for having cut a swath of destruction through Georgia and the Carolinas during the Civil War. From the fame of these years, however, he moved into an eighteen-year phase of “insuring the tranquility” of the vast region of the American West. As commander of the Division of the Missouri from 1865 to 1869 and General of the Army of the United States under President Grant from 1869 to 1883, Sherman facilitated expansion and settlement in the West while suppressing the raids of the Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Kiowa, Comanche, and Crow Indians. Robert G. Athearn explores Sherman’s and his army’s roles in the settling of the West, especially within the broad framework of railroad construction, Indian policy, political infighting, and popular opinion.
