General Sherman and the Carolinas Campaign

William T. Sherman is perhaps best known for his “March to the Sea” from Atlanta to Savannah. But his subsequent march from the Georgia coast through the Carolinas was militarily perhaps more important as it hastened the Civil War to an end. For a few short weeks, North Carolina became a major theater of the war as Confederate forces resisted not only Sherman’s army, but also forces advancing from the coast to link up with Sherman. This class will look at William Tecumseh Sherman’s career both before and after the war, as well as his role earlier in the war, with a focus on the closing weeks of the war in North Carolina.
