1875 General Sherman 1ed Memoirs US Civil War Union Battles 2v HUGE Military MAP
US Civil War Union Battles 2v HUGE Military MAP. William Tecumseh Sherman was a 19. Century American military officer, known for his outstanding service as a Union Army general during the Civil War. In 1875, seeking to stay out of politics, Sherman published his.' which would become one of the best-known, first-hand accounts of the American Civil War. This important autobiography includes political and personal views regarding slavery, encouraging slaves to try to escape (despite his personal disinterest in recruiting their military help), and his military philosophy. Best summed up in his own words. My aim then was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Sherman's personal memoirs offer an important look into the life and military mind of Sherman with special emphasis given to each of his war campaigns. Penned with intelligence and passion, [these Memoirs] cover the periods of birth to the Meridian Expedition early in 1864 and the remainder of the war to the commander's first decade following the war.
The memoirs frankly describe the rights and wrongs of the Civil War campaigns Sherman experienced, without regard to stepping on the feelings of others. The work is not unduly harsh, but is unwaveringly honest. The writing in this work is enjoyable, more so than the average soldier's memoirs, and the enlightened opinions of the second-ranking Federal officer on a multitude of operations make the work invaluable.
