Ivan V. Turchaninov photograph
Description: Carte de visite of General Ivan V. Turchaninov, who served with the Union Army during the Civil War. Born to a Cossack family in Russia, Turchaninov fought at Huntsville, Chattanooga, and Chickamauga. He is most remembered for the infamous "Rape of Athens" where he permitted his troops to plunder a town whose citizens had participated in a previous defeat. While condemned, his actions presaged the "total war" tactics of Sherman and Grant later in the war. View on Ohio Memory.
