In 1864 General William T. Sherman and his army marched out of a burning Atlanta and embarked on his infamous “March to the Sea” that ended in December at Savannah. Sherman introduced the concept of “total war” in which civilians felt the direct impact of the destruction of anything that would aid the Confederate war effort.
