William Tecumseh Sherman carte de visite
Description: Carte de visite of General William Tecumseh Sherman, who served with the Union Army during the Civil War. A native of Lancaster, Ohio, Sherman is best known for his "March to the Sea" from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia, utilizing the idea of "total war" to attempt to end the war more quickly. He fought at many other battles, however, including Bull Run, Shiloh, Corinth, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Missionary Ridge, and Kennesaw Mountain. He also accepted the surrender of Confederate General Joseph Johnston's army, the largest single surrender of troops during the war. View on Ohio Memory.
