Sherman's Civil War: Selected Correspondence of William T. Sherman, 1860-1865 (Civil War America)

Simpson, Brooks D. Author

9780807824405: Sherman's Civil War: Selected Correspondence of William T. Sherman, 1860-1865 (Civil War America)

The first major modern edition of the wartime correspondence of General William T. Sherman, this volume features more than 400 letters written between the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and the day Sherman bade farewell to his troops in 1865. Together, they trace Sherman's rise from obscurity to become one of the Union's most famous and effective warriors.
Arranged chronologically and grouped into chapters that correspond to significant phases in Sherman's life, the letters--many of which have never before been published--reveal Sherman's thoughts on politics, military operations, slavery and emancipation, the South, and daily life in the Union army, as well as his reactions to such important figures as General Ulysses S. Grant and President Lincoln.
Lively, frank, opinionated, discerning, and occasionally extremely wrong-headed, these letters mirror the colorful personality and complex mentality of the man who wrote them. They offer the reader an invaluable glimpse of the Civil War as Sherman saw it.

Book Description:

"This is a valuable research tool for those writing about the Civil War in the western theater. But even the casual reader will find Sherman's life captivating. Through these letters one views a wide range of emotions-fear, anger, triumph-and is reminded that history is just the story of people. Sherman just happens to be one of the most controversial that America has produced."-- North Carolina Historical Review

From the Inside Flap:

Features more than 400 wartime letters of Union General William T. Sherman, one of the Civil War•s most famous and effective generals. Sherman emerges here as a lively, opinionated, and discerning observer of political and military issues and events.
