Home Letters of General Sherman Book Description :
Who was William Tecumseh Sherman? Before the American Civil War, he was an obscure military man. In the early days of the conflict, he was considered by some to be insane. At the end of the war, he was considered one of America's greatest heroes and generals. Brilliant, erratic, and a force of nature, Sherman cut a swath across the South that is now a part of world history. In these intimate letters to family, you see a side of Sherman you perhaps have not seen before. From a young man writing to his future wife, to the general in charge of an army, to the man in his last years, these are the private letters Sherman sent home. This collection was passed on to Marc Antony DeWolfe Howe (of the Atlantic Monthly) by Sherman's daughter. Here are his opinions on politics and politicians, his fellow generals, his friend Grant, and the horrors of war. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.
