Product Description
This looks at a set of correspondence between William T. Sherman and one of his subordinates about the issue of runaway slaves. Sherman and his men are stationed in Northern Kentucky and are experiencing higher numbers of slaves trying to flee their masters and join the Union ranks. This correspondence displays the general unpreparedness of the Union army to handle this situation. As well as the reality that Lincoln had no intention of helping slaves until after 1863. It also allows for a conversation on the role of Kentucky in the War, as a neural state being occupied by both sides.
