William Tecumseh Sherman was an American soldier, businessman, educator and author. He served as a General in the Union Army during the American Civil War, for which he received recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy as well as criticism for the harshness that he implemented in conducting total war against the Confederate States.
Perhaps the originator and the first practitioner of what the twentieth century came to know as “total war,” Sherman in 1864 commanded the Union armies of the West in the decisive drive from Chattanooga to Atlanta and the famous “march to the sea” across Georgia.
In these campaigns and his later push northward from Savannah through the Carolinas, Sherman’s troops carried the war to the Southern home front and blazed a wide path of destruction that delivered the death blow to the Confederacy’s will and ability to fight.
Later, when he was frequently talked of as a prospective Republican nominee for president following Grant, Sherman sent the Republican National Convention of 1884 the most famous of all rejections:“I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected.”
The presentation covers the following:
