William T Sherman, Commanding General, Military, Mississippi


Much has been written about General William T. Sherman. His name appears in nearly every general account of the Civil War. But, after a careful examination of the field it has been found that one aspect of his career, namely, his role as Commanding General of the Military Division of the Mississippi, has been neglected. In part, this might have been expected. Since much of his work was of such a nature as to cause antipathy in a large portion of the present United States, it is understandable that Southerners might hesitate to write on it.
