William T. Sherman

General William T. Sherman was one of the most significant Union field commanders of the Civil War. A close friend of General-in-Chief Ulysses S. Grant, Sherman is best known for his command of the Army of the Tennessee, his conduct of the Atlanta Campaign in the spring and summer of 1864, and his infamous March to the Sea, from Atlanta to Savannah, during which he vowed to “make Georgia howl.” Sherman’s prosecution of total war has remained controversial, and he is remembered for uttering the phrase, “War is hell, and you cannot refine it.” Sherman died in 1891 at the age of 71.
