Excerpt from The Memorial Life of General William Tecumseh Sherman

Citizens who would realize the thrill of patriotic enthusiasm which stirred the national pulse during the war must seek on all sides for points of view which shall cover the scene and present the widest grasp of moving causes. It is not denied that patriotism was general; it may perhaps be said that all hearts were inspired with the same hope of a reunited country and more firmly established institutions. Still there remains the necessity of looking along the line which stretched from forsaken homes to the headquarters tent of the commanding general that the picture may be all-embracing. There was wide difference in the chances of advancement between the private in the ranks and the colonel at the head of his regiment. The outlook between these two points covers a large range and includes all that constitutes the test of army feeling.

There were few lives in which this field was covered. None in which it is touched at all points as in that of William Tecumseh Sherman. To the soldier in the ranks General Sherman appeared as the sum of all that was noble in a commander. He possessed none of those characteristics which kept constantly in view a life of preparation for military duty. His every act showed something of the preparation for present duties which made the performance of work in hand seem natural. Sherman was a soldier because of the emergency which called him from peaceful pursuits, and not because he had been educated at public expense to a knowledge of military tactics.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Memorial Life of General William Tecumseh Sherman It was to be expected that veterans of the Civil War would be interested in any full and accurate life of General Sher man. This would especially be true oi those who were under his command, or in any way participated in the campaigns with which his world - wide fame was associated. But in read ing the proof-pages of the present work, the writer has not only been deeply interested in the narratives of battles and campaigns, in which he was more or less closely associated with General Sherman, but has received new impressions of the General s character, and has found that other periods of his life, comparatively little known, possess an absorbing interest. There was never anything commonplace about Sherman. As a boy, a youth at West Point, or in his first Indian campaigning in Florida, a young Officer in California, or afterward as a banker in San Francisco, not many years later at the head of the State Military School of Louisiana, as commander of a brigade at the first battle of Bull Run, or in his more responsible position, better known to the pub lic during the remainder of the war, there is a picturesque and striking quality, that must always compel the attention, if not the admiration, of the reader.
